    • Climate and Ecological Change in Oligo-Miocene Mammals 

      Orcutt, John D. (University of Oregon, 2011-12)
      Whether or not a causal relationship exists between climate and mammal body size is one of the longest-standing and most intractable questions in ecology. The classic model of body size evolution (Bergmann's Rule) holds ...
    • Gait animation and analysis for biomechanically-articulated skeletons 

      Wills, Eric David, 1977- (University of Oregon, 2008-03)
      Digital three-dimensional (3D) models are useful for biomechanical analysis because they can be interactively visualized and manipulated. Synthesizing and analyzing animal locomotion with these models, however, is difficult ...
    • The geography of fire: A paleo perspective 

      Marlon, Jennifer R. (University of Oregon, 2009-09)
      Fire is a fundamental, transformative, yet poorly understood process in the Earth system; it can radically reorganize ecosystems, alter regional carbon and energy balances, and change global climate. Short-term fire histories ...
    • Holocene vegetation and fire history of the floristically diverse Klamath Mountains, northern California, USA 

      Briles, Christy Elaine, 1976- (University of Oregon, 2008-03)
      The Holocene vegetation and fire history of the Klamath Mountains (KM), northern California, was reconstructed at three sites based on an analysis of pollen and high-resolution macroscopic charcoal in lake-sediment cores. ...
