‘T. rex Sex, Life and Death: Inferences from the fossil record‘
Chris Carbone has diverse research interests, but in particular he has explored ecological and evolutionary processes influencing predator-prey relationships. This work has explored how body size influences selection of prey and hunting energetic and population dynamics across carnivore species. Recently, applications from this research have been use to interpret patterns in hunting and competition among extinct species including Smilodon (sabre-toothed cat) and Tyrannosaurus rex. Additional research interests include human-wildlife interactions particularly focusing on the impacts of altered landscapes on wildlife ecology and species richness and ways to improve wildlife monitoring methods including the use of camera traps.
