Anna K. Behrensmeyer

Behrensmeyer's research interests include vertebrate taphonomy and paleoecology throughout the land fossil record. Her research currently emphasizes hominid-bearing deposits in East Africa, the Miocene Siwalik sequence of Pakistan, and taphonomic patterns and fossilization processes throughout geologic time. She is a Research Scientist and Curator of Vertebrate Paleonotology and Taphonomy in the NMNH Department of Paleobiology and co-director of ETE.

Matthew T. Carrano

Carrano's research interests include dinosaur phylogeny, evolution, ecology, and functional morphology. His fieldwork has taken him to the Western Interior of North America, Chile, and Madagascar in search of new dinosaurs and the Mesozoic ecosystems of which they formed an important part. He is a Research Scientist and Curator of Fossil Dinosaurs in the NMNH Department of Paleobiology and a member of ETE.

Condrad C. Labandeira

Labandeira was appointed a member of ETE in 1993. He is a Research Scientist and Curator of Paleoentomology in the NMNH Department of Paleobiology with research interests in plant-insect associations in the fossil record, insect paleoecology and evolution, early Devonian ecosystems and the origin of arthropod terrestriality.

S. Kathleen Lyons

Lyons' research focuses on the factors affecting and controlling species diversity at multiple scales across both space and time. She is particularly interested in the effects of global climate change on species diversity and uses the fossil record of mammals over the last 40,000 years to evaluate how current changes in global climate may affect diversity patterns in the future. Because it provides a useful way to compare modern species and communities to fossil species and communities, Lyons focuses on the similairites and differences in macroecological patterns across space and time. She is a Research Scientist in the NMNH Department of Paleobiology and a member of ETE.

Richard Potts

Pott's research focuses on understanding the biological and cultural foundations of human life. His research focuses on the interaction between early human populations and the enviroment in the which they lived. He is a Research Scientist and Curator of Paleoanthropology in the NMNH Department of Anthropology, Director of the Human Origins Program and a member of ETE.

Hans-Dieter Sues

Sues' research focuses on the evolutionary morphology and phylogeny of late Paleozoic and Mesozoic tetrapods, especially archosaurian reptiles and non-mammalian cynodonts and on the evolution of terrestrial ecosystems. He is a Research Scientist and Curator of Vertebrate Paleontologyin the NMNH Department of Paleobiology and a member of ETE.

Scott L. Wing

Wing's research focuses on long-term records of evolutionary, ecological and environmental change of floras in the Cretaceous and the Early Cenozoic. He is particularly interested in trends in morphology, comoposition and diversity of floras, and comparisons of floral change with indicators of environmental change. He is a Research Scientist and Curator of Fossil Plants and a member of ETE.
