Lydia Tackett - Paleoecology and Sedimentology Lab


My research focuses on the paleoecology of shelly marine animals from the Late Triassic, particularly how they adapted to changing levels of predation, how they were affected by the Manicouagan bolide impact, and what ecological and taxonomic consequences these transitions had on the extinction events in the latest Triassic. To evaluate this areas of research, I collect large samples of fossiliferous sedimentary rock from various field localities, interpret depositional environments with sedimentology in the field, using microfacies, and microfossils, and correlate sequences using biostratigraphy and isotope chemostratigraphy.
