Brief description Developing reliable chronologies for extinct Australian Pleistocene megafauna from museum fossil collections. Our ability to understand the timing of prehistoric extinction events is critical, but can only be achieved by reliable dating methods. This project will adopt several new and exciting methodologies in the direct dating of fossils to determine the chronological sequence and the timing of extinction of the Pleistocene megafauna.
