Bio

David L. Rodland teaches classes in environmental geology, Earth history, oceanography, paleontology, sedimentology and stratigraphy. He was an Alexander von Humboldt Research Fellow at The Johann Wolfgang Goethe University of Frankfurt am Main, Germany, and has also served on the faculty of Southern Connecticut State University in New Haven, Connecticut, George Washington University in Washington, D.C., and the State University of New York at Oswego, New York. With research interests in paleoecology, stratigraphy, geochemistry and marine biology, his work includes the ecology and environmental conditions during the biotic recovery from the end-Permian mass extinction, paleotemperature records in marine invertebrate skeletons, thermal behavioral response in mollusks, the preservation of hard substrate faunas, and the Holocene fossil record of ecological response to environmental change.
