Darin Croft is a Professor in the Department of Anatomy at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland. He specializes in the evolution and paleoecology of South American mammals, and his research interests span alpha taxonomy (describing new species), phylogenetics (how animals are related), paleoecology (how extinct animals lived and interacted with each other), and macroecology (large scale trends in species diversity and community evolution). Many of his investigations has focused on a group of endemic (and now extinct) mammals called notoungulates, but he also also published various works on rodents, marsupials, and xenarthrans. He has long-standing collaborative field research programs in the Andes of Chile and Bolivia and has also conducted fieldwork in Argentina, Ecuador, and Peru. He is a research associate at several natural history museums, including the nearby Cleveland Museum of Natural History, and is an external faculty member of the Facultad de Ciencias of the Universidad Austral de Chile in Valdivia.
