Maria Viteri

My research lies at the intersections of conservation, ecology, and paleontology.  Specifically, I am interested in tracking faunal community change over time to create a deeper context for the biodiversity crises of today and tomorrow. At Stanford I am working on discerning the fingerprints of the Anthropocene on small mammal communities in the San Francisco Bay Area using skeletal remains from raptor pellets and archaeological sites.
