Prof. Wayne and colleagues co-authored important Nature paper about megafaunal extinctions.

EEB faculty Robert Wayne along with colleagues including recently graduated Ph.D. students Bridgett vonHoldt and Dan Stahler, post-doc Dan MacNaulty, and Professor Tim Coulson from Imperial College, London, have published a new approach in the journal Science that attempts to predict the response of populations to environmental change. The focus population is the recently reintroduced Yellowstone National Park gray wolves for which detailed records have been kept for the past 15 years.
