Mesozoic ecosystems

Our research focuses on forest ecosystems of the Mesozoic Era and the interactions of their plant and dinosaur inhabitants.

Plants form the basis of animal food chains and are therefore fundamental to terrestrial ecosystems. Our current research investigates forest ecosystems and the role of plants in dinosaur evolution.

  • Antarctosaurus and Saltasaurus.
    Dinosaur and plant co-evolution

    Exploring the extent to which evolution of dinosaur diversity and physiology is dependent on plants.

  • Jurassic landscape.
    Mesozoic forests of Britain

    Seeking to understand forest ecosystems of the Mesozoic Era, and documenting an important feature of the geological heritage of the British Isles.
