author3Suzanne Hand. PANGEA Research Centre, School of Biological, Earth & Environmental Sciences, University of New South Wales, Sydney 2052, New South Wales, Australia.

B.Sc. Hons (University of New South Wales); PhD (Macquarie University); FRZS; FRSN. Suzanne is a vertebrate palaeontologist at the University of New South Wales where she teaches zoology and geology. Her research interests are largely in the areas of evolutionary biology, functional morphology, phylogenetics, and biogeography, with a special interest in fossil and modern mammals, particularly bats. She co-leads research of the World Heritage-listed Riversleigh fossil deposits of northern Australia and the Eocene Tingamarra fossil deposits of Queensland.


author4Gilbert J. Price. School of Earth and Environmental Sciences, The University of Queensland, Brisbane, Queensland 4072, Australia.

Ph.D. (Queensland University of Technology). Gilbert Price is a Senior Lecturer in Palaeontology at The University of Queensland. He is a vertebrate palaeoecologist and geochronologist, particularly interested in the evolution and emergence of our planet’s unique ecosystems and fauna, and their response to prehistoric climatic changes. His major research focus has been on the development of palaeoecological models for Australia’s Cenozoic, especially the Quaternary megafauna. Critically, this also involves the production of reliably-dated records for the fossils that he studies.
