Steve Wolverton
Steve is an environmental scientist and archaeologist specializing in
paleozoology of North America during the Holocene. He is assistant
professor in environmental archaeology and conservation paleozoology at
the University of North Texas, Department of Geography. His interests
span ecology, paleoecology of North America, environmental archaeology,
paleozoology, and conservation biology. His recent research focuses on
white-tailed deer and black bear biology and the use of datasets from
zooarchaeology and paleontology to address modern issues in
conservation biology. In addition, Steve has interests in analytical
chemistry and has on-going research in artifact residue analysis
including fatty-acid and protein residues from pottery.
