About Michael Etnier

Mike is a zooarchaeologist, primarily interested in studying biogeography and historical ecology of North Pacific marine ecosystems, and how changes in each of these has or has not influenced, or been influenced by, prehistoric human hunting practices. To study these complex systems, he spends nearly equal amounts of time working with modern and ancient bone and tooth samples. Mike is currently working on year three of a three-year NSF grant, but is hoping to extend the project one more year (with or without additional funding)
