Mereghetti ice age coprolites research highlighted in BDN

The Bangor Daily News highlighted Allessandro Mereghetti’s analysis of coprolites — also called fossilized feces — from Siberia that date back to the last ice age. These coprolites, according to the Ph.D. student in ecology and environmental sciences at the University of Maine Climate Change Institute, will give insights into which animals lived there more than 20,000 years ago, as well as what plants they ate and how they interacted with the landscape over millennia.
