Edward Byrd Davis. Department of Earth Sciences, University of Oregon, 1272 University of Oregon, Eugene, Oregon 97403-1272, USA and Museum of Natural and Cultural History, University of Oregon, 1680 E. 15th Ave., Eugene, OR 97403-1224, USA.
Edward Byrd Davis is the Fossil Collections Manager for the University of Oregon Museum of Natural and Cultural History, and an assistant professor in the Department of Earth Sciences. He received his B.S. from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and his Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley. He divides his time between museum curatorial nightmares, teaching in the UO Geology Department, and paleomammalogy research. His primary research interests lie in geographic range response to climate change over shallow and deep time and in ruminant artiodactyl evolution.
Samantha S.B. Hopkins. Robert D. Clark Honors College, University of Oregon, 1293 University of Oregon, Eugene, OR 97403-1293, USA/Department of Earth Sciences, University of Oregon, 1272 University of Oregon, Eugene, Oregon 97403-1272, USA.
Samantha Hopkins is an Associate Professor of Earth Sciences in the Clark Honors College at the University of Oregon, where she has been on the faculty since 2007. She received a B.S. in biology and earth sciences from the University of Tennessee in 1999 and a Ph.D. in Integrative Biology from the University of California, Berkeley in 2006. Her research focuses on the evolution of ecology in fossil mammals, using both phylogenetic techniques and field research in the U.S. and Kyrgyzstan. She has studied the evolutionary histories of rodents and carnivores, as well as the systematics of a variety of fossil mammals. These systematic studies have led to macroevolutionary work on the evolution of diet and locomotor habits in mammals, as well as the influence of landscape and habitat change on mammalian ecological dynamics.
