Paleontological Research and Collections

Edward Davis, Paleontological Collections Manager


Davis (BS, 1999, Geology, University of Tennessee, Knoxville; PhD, 2005, Integrative Biology, University of California, Berkeley) has been with the museum since 2007. His museum experience stems from several years of graduate research fellowship employment in the collections of the UC Museum of Paleontology. His research interests focus on the assembly of landscape-scale ecological processes in large mammals, as seen through the lens of deep time, but he has recently become interested in the evolution of development in artiodactyl horns and antlers.

Gregory Retallack, co-Director of Paleontological Collections

(541) 346-4558,

Retallack (BA, 1973, Macquarie University, Australia; PhD, 1978, New England University, Australia) is a professor in the Department of Geological Sciences. He is interested in life on land before Devonian (417 Ma) evolution of familiar kinds of land plants. This involves the study of fossil soils ranging in age up to 3500 million years, mainly in spectacular exposures of the Australian desert. The scientific questions under investigation are the role of life on land in oxidation of the atmosphere and other global changes in paleoclimate.
