Dr. Miriam Belmaker's Lab 

   The boss lady   


             Both zooarchaeological and paleontological methods can be utilized in reconstructing ancient environments 
             through space and time. Currently, we are building a large comparative collection to assist in research. This
             includes a comparative collection of modern species, fossil casts as well as a virtual collection based on 3D
            images of famous fossils. 

       We are always looking for students, graduate and undergraduate, to join our team!
