Project Description

Dr. Durham graduated from Dartmouth College with a B.A. in biology and earned his Ph.D. in paleontology with a minor in conservation biology from Cornell University. His dissertation research focused on comparing the lifespans of fossil oysters that lived during a warmer time in the past—a potential analog for future warming—with those of modern oysters.
