Abstract

Linda Ivany hails from the hills of northwestern Connecticut. She spent her childhood collecting fossils in tlie most ancient sense ofifte word -anything she could dig up out of the ground. Her fifth grade mentor, geologist Rob Amrein, gave her a hammer and. chisel and a picnic-table-sized block of TriOA.sic siltstone full of hidden dinosaur tracks, and her fate was sealed. The next 7 years were variously spent dragging her (very patient) parents to New York State so she could collect in the Devonian Hamilton Group and in Plio-Pleistocene shell beds of Florida during family vacations. She studied geology arid zoology at Syracuse University for her bachelors degree, the same for a masters at the University of Florida in Gainesviiln, and then went on to Harvard for her Ph.D. in geology. She is currently a Visiting Assistant Professor and Michigan Society Felloit; at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. Field work has taken her from the mountains of Wyoming io the seagrass beds of the. Bay of Naples to the marine habitats and Tertiary sediments of the Gulf Coast, and more. She is interested broadly in marine paleoecology, and in the relationships between ecology, evolution., and environment. Her recent work has concentrated on biotic and environmental change in the Eocene of the US Gulf Coastal Plain.
