Allison Stegner

Photo of Allison Stegner Allison is a paleoecologist with a background in Quaternary mammals of North America. She uses paleontological and neontological datasets to understand how species respond to environmental change through time, and is interested in how spatial dynamics influence temporal dynamics in biodiversity, and vice versa. As a member of the ACES group, she is studying species and community dynamics recorded in fossil pollen datasets.
