Check our new @biorxivpreprint where we propose the use of neighbor-joining trees to represent and quantify #functional #diversity. Combining the advantages of tree and hypervolume representations, with all functions available at #rstats package BAT
Our perspective on the potential of deep-time palaeontology to aid conservation prioritisation is now published in @FrontiersIn Eco & Evo (Integrating Conservation and Paleobiology to Manage Biodiversity and Ecosystems in a Changing World)
My book Animals in Stone, Indian Mammals Sculptured Through Time is now #openaccess, available here https://brill.com/display/title/15305 It is, for a change, NOT about island mammals 🙂 but about #ethnozoology #SouthAsia #Sculpture #temples & #stupas
Coming in 2023: an exciting special feature, Leveraging #NaturalHistoryCollections to understand global change.

The Gargano Penninsula of Italy was once an island during the Miocene and like many islands the animals evolved into many unusual endemic species. Like this Hoplitomeryx, a small deer-like animal with 5 horns and large canine teeth.
