    UNM biology professor Dr. Felisa Smith examining a fossilized debris pile (or paleomidden) in Titus Canyon in Death Valley National Park. Paleomiddens are created by packrats; when preserved under the right arid conditions, they provide a record of vegetation and body size over time. Smith collects paleomiddens across the western United States. In Death Valley, her lab has collected more than 100 samples with radiocarbon ages spanning 34,000 years to present. Smith’s research is in the area of Conservation Paleoecology.
