Coupled Grassland and Mammalian Community Dynamics Over Ecological and Evolutionary Timescales II

June 20, 2016

Background Mammalian communities in Africa have undergone dramatic changes over the last five million years, and much of this change has been linked to the spread of C4 grassland habitats. The Coupled Grassland and Mammalian Community Dynamics Over Ecological and Evolutionary Timescales working group at Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire is the second meeting in a series with an aim to include researchers spanning multiple fields with an interest in these systems to generate original research.

The first working group was hosted and funded by the Santa Fe Institute in Santa Fe, New Mexico from September 30 - October 02, 2015. This follow-up group meeting was supported by the William H. Neukom Institute for Computational Science, Dartmouth College, and the Claire Garber Goodman Fund in the Department of Anthropology, Dartmouth College, from May 22-23, 2016. The participants included

 1. Michael Brown (Dartmouth College)

2. Andy Dobson (Princeton University)

3. Nathaniel Dominy (Dartmouth College)

4. John Fryxell (University of Guelph)

5. Jacquelyn Gill (University of Maine)

6. Caley Johnson (CUNY)

7. Mathias Pires (São Paulo University via Skype)

8. Caroline Strömberg (University of Washington via Skype)
