*Bio: Dr. J. Bret. Bennington is currently Professor of Geology at Hofstra University on Long Island, New York where he has been teaching since 1993. His B.S. degree in biology/geology is from the University of Rochester (1985) and his Ph.D. in geology is from Virginia Tech (1995). His research in paleontology involves the quantitative analysis of the fossil record to learn about the evolution of ecological communities over long intervals of time. Other paleontology projects involve studies of marine ecosystems in the Devonian, Carboniferous, and Cretaceous periods, as well as the statistical analysis of fossil footprints.  Other research activities involve the glacial history and glacial geomorphology of Long Island. He is also currently working with Dr. E. Christa Farmer at Hofstra on a project studying the record of past hurricane and major storm events preserved in the marsh and bay sediments of southern Long Island.  Teaching activities include courses in physical geology, historical geology, dinosaurs, hydrology, geomorphology, paleontology, and Charles Darwin and evolution. Dr. Bennington also co-directs a study abroad program in the Gal├ípagos Islands and Ecuador. He is a member of the Geological Society of America, the Paleontological Society, and the Society for Economic Paleontology and Mineralogy.
