Research

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-Paleogene (K-Pg) boundary. Eberle's research is field intensive, and her field sites range throughout the Rocky Mountain Region and the Arctic.

Teaching

courses taught

  • GEOL 1020 - Dodos, Dinos, and Deinococcus: The History of a Habitable Planet
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2020
    Examines how the solid, fluid, and living Earth interact, how changes in the oceans, atmosphere and life reflect that interaction over the immensity of geologic time, and how the rock record is analyzed to reconstruct the co-evolution of Earth and life. Degree credit not granted for this course and GEOL 1040.
  • GEOL 4474 - Vertebrate Paleontology
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2019
    Discusses the history and evolution of the vertebrates, including the phylogenetic relationships and evolutionary patterns of the major groups. Lab focuses on comparative vertebrate osteology and fossil representation of major groups. Department enforced prerequisites: GEOL 1020 and GEOL 3410 (or permission from the instructor). Same as GEOL 5474.
  • GEOL 5474 - Vertebrate Paleontology
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2019
    Discusses the history and evolution of the vertebrates, including the phylogenetic relationships and evolutionary patterns of the major groups. Lab focuses on comparative vertebrate osteology and fossil representation of major groups. Same as GEOL 4474 and MUSM 5474.
