About this book

The increasing rate of species extinction in the present day will lead to a huge biodiversity crisis; eventually, this will lead to the paucity of non-renewable resources of energy making our Earth unsustainable in future. To save the planet from this crisis, studies need to be performed to discover abundant new fossil sites on Earth for continued access to oil-rich locations. Most importantly, a holistic approach is necessary in solving the present problem of biodiversity loss. Biodiversity and Evolutionary Ecology of Extinct Organisms presents newly developed quantitative models in understanding the biodiversity, evolution and ecology of extinct organisms. This will assist future earth scientists in understanding the natural and anthropogenic causes behind biodiversity crisis and ecosystem collapse. In addition, this study can be of great interest to exploration geologists and geophysicists in potentially unraveling natural resources from our sustainable Earth.

Biography

Dr. Rituparna Bose (M.S., PhD) is currently an adjunct Assistant Professor in the Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences in the City College of New York. Dr. Bose obtained her undergraduate education at the University of Calcutta, India and authored a thesis paper in environmental geology (coastal management). She came to United States in 2004 to pursue higher studies. During the course of her graduate studies at Bowling Green State University and Indiana University at Bloomington, she was the primary author in multiple high-impact peer-reviewed publications. Here she was awarded the Indiana University Dissertation Year Research Fellowship which is given to the best doctoral students of the university. Her work with Dr. Margaret Yacobucci and Dr. David Polly culminated in major findings in evaluating the evolution and determining the biodiversity of extinct organisms. As a result of her findings which have profound implications in bio-conservation, she won major national awards like the Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Grant (American Museum of Natural History) and Schuchert and Dunbar Grant (Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History). Additionally, BP Global Energy Group funded her to present these findings at North American Paleontology Convention (NAPC) by the prestigious NAPC Travel Award. Dr. Bose continues to pursue both her teaching and research career. Her research interests lie in applications of quantitative algorithms to study evolutionary biology, micropaleontology, disaster management studies and other applied geological sciences. In addition, she teaches courses in Physical Geology, Earth System Science, Environmental Geology, Natural Disasters and Historical Geology.
