Guest lecture in “The Anthropocene: An Archaeological Perspective”

I was invited by Dr Hans Barnard of the Cotsen Center for Archaeology at UCLA to give a short guest lecture to his honors collegium class today on reconstructing crop yields from climate models and using lake core sediment charcoal as a paleofire proxy. I was in august company as Dr. Emily Lindsey, paleontologist and Assistant Curator at the La Brea Tar Pits and Museum, was also there to give an excellent talk on megafaunal extinction from her own work on quantifying extinction rates of taxa.
