After the Earthquake: Dietary Resource Use During the Hellenistic, Roman, and Byzantine Periods at Helike, GreeceDownload
After a devastating earthquake and tsunami destroyed the Classical city of ancient Helike in 373 BC, the surrounding coastal plain was resettled and was continuously inhabited from the Hellenistic to the Late Byzantine periods. Twenty-eight individuals associated with these post-earthquake...
Data from Kahn et al. (Trophic ecology of glass sponge reefs in the Strait of Georgia, British Columbia)
Data from Kahn et al. (Trophic ecology of glass sponge reefs in the Strait of Georgia, British Columbia)Download
Sponges link the microbial loop with benthic communities by feeding on bacteria. Glass sponge reefs on the continental shelf of western Canada have extremely high grazing rates, consuming seven times more particulate carbon than can be supplied by vertical flux alone. Unlike many sponges, the...
This study is designed to investigate human dietary features on the Central Plains of China during the social transition from regional states to centralized empire, which occurred during the period from the Eastern Zhou to the Han Dynasty (770BC-220 AD). Human remains from four sites and animal...
Habitat selection and food-web relations of Horned Grebes (Podiceps auritus) and other aquatic birds on constructed wetlands in the Peace Parkland, Alberta, CanadaDownload
I investigated if constructed wetlands provide breeding habitat for the Horned Grebe (Podiceps auritus) in northwest Alberta. Over two years, I conducted bird surveys of 201 borrow-pits (ponds created during road construction) and 18 natural wetlands and collected data on local habitat and...
Competition for prey is known to narrow the trophic niche width of freshwater fishes. Upon release from interspecific competition, the niche variation hypothesis (NVH) predicts that population niche width will expand via increased inter-individual variation in resource use. I compared the...
Reconstructing Childhood Diet using Dentine Microsamples from Skeletal Remains from Kenchreai and Isthmia, GreeceDownload
An understudied topic in bioarchaeology is that of childhood diet after weaning. Palaeodietary reconstructions have typically focused on examining breastfeeding and weaning or adult diets. This study uses stable isotope analysis of dentine microsamples to examine the diets of juveniles at the...
Reconstructing Individual and Population Diet at Fishergate House: Application of a New Microsampling Method for Stable Isotope AnalysisDownload
The stable isotope signature of childhood diet changes from a fetal signal (similar to the mother), to a breastfeeding signal, and finally to a weaned signal, which may or many not match the adult diet. The patterning of these changes can give insight into child feeding practices and parenting. A...
As climates warm and extreme climatic events occur with more frequency and severity, maintaining forest health and productivity may involve planting seed sources from warmer, drier areas. To guide such reforestation strategies, this work analyzes the risks of both climate change and assisted...
