Personal profile

Research Interests

Dr. Smith’s research focuses on the taxonomy, phylogeny, and biogeography of late Neogene-age mammals from the Great Basin and Great Plains of North America. To this end, he traces mammalian diversity through deep time to evaluate factors (e.g., climate, historical, and geographic) that influence changes in faunal composition.
