Pierce lab alumna Abba Parker ('17) has published her amazing undergraduate senior thesis! Along with Brianna McHorse, Abba was able to quantitatively show that extinct horses of North America did not partition habitat based on trait state (e.g. body size, digit reduction, tooth crown height). Very proud of both Abba and Brianna on this great piece of research!
