Dr. Tausch’s research is currently focused on the continental scale effects of climate change during the initial periods of human evolution. To this end, he has published work on 2 million year old Javanese Homo erectus molars using microwear as a proxy for dietary preference. Jeremy is also interested in bringing nature education to the general public. He led a team of scientists and documentary videographers to film wildlife near Gamboa, Panama and in Khao Sok National Park, Thailand. He plans to market this work as a novel nature show aimed at educating a wider audience on topics such as organismal biology, biodiversity, conservation and climate change. Jeremy also participated in the survey and excavation of Miocene (~23 to 5.3mya) and Pleistocene (~2.6mya to 12,000yrs.) fossiliferous beds in Kenya and Malawi respectively. During his last trip, he was afflicted with malaria, which was not very pleasant…
