research overview

  • Dr. Eberle's research focuses on the study of mammalian faunas during past intervals of climate change as well as the recovery and evolution of mammals following a mass extinction event. She studies mammalian fossils to: (1) date the rocks (i.e., biostratigraphy); (2) determine the family tree or phylogeny of mammalian groups; (3) provide insight into the paleobiology,-ecology, and -biogeography of ancient mammals through combined analyses of stable isotopes and mammalian paleontology; and assess the recovery and evolutionary radiation of mammals following dinosaur extinction at the Cretaceous-Tertiary (K-T) boundary. Eberle's research is field intensive, and her field sites range throughout the Rocky Mountain Region and the Arctic.


  • Vertebrate paleontology, Late Cretaceous and Paleogene mammalian biostratigraphy, phylogeny, and evolution, Arctic mammalian paleoecology, biogeography, and paleoclimate
