BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH

Prior to joining the American Museum of Natural History in 1988 as Curator in the Division of Vertebrate Zoology, he was Associate Professor of Anatomy at Duke University Medical Center. He has also taught at Columbia University, New York University, and several universities in Canada. Dr. MacPhee’s research interests span the evolutionary history of mammals, island biogeography, and the biology and causation of extinction. He has led or participated in more than 50 scientific expeditions in 14 countries, including both polar regions. He lives in Manhattan with wife Clare Flemming.
