Overview

Gilbert Price is a Lecturer in Palaeontology at The University of Queensland in Australia. He obtained his Ph.D. in Palaeoecology from Queensland University of Technology in 2006. His Ph.D. and subsequent post-doctoral projects have spanned a wide breadth of distinctive research fields that include palaeoecology, geochronology, zoology and modern conservation. He is especially focused on developing key datasets with which to test hypotheses concerning the extinction of Australia’s Pleistocene megafauna.

Research Impacts

Gilbert’s research is on track to have major impacts on and beyond the challenge of understanding megafaunal extinctions. His multidisciplinary studies span a wide breadth of distinctive research fields that include palaeoecology, geochronology, zoology and modern conservation. He already has and should continue to produce many more important, insightful publications that will significantly advance these fields as he continues to attract, and work with, a diverse range of national and international collaborators. The broad conclusions he is developing about the relationships between deep-time regional climate change and significant impacts on biodiversity have immediate relevance to some of the most worrying aspects of contemporary climate change.
