UNH researcher finds global warming shrinks mammals

Ms. D’Ambrosia, a PhD student at the University of New Hampshire, investigated how mammals had responded to the second, smaller “hyperthermal” 54 million years ago. She and her colleagues ventured into the Bighorn Basin, a fossil-rich patch of northwest Wyoming, searching for the teeth of mammals alive during that time: a proxy for body size.
