You've reached the homepage of Michael Etnier. I'm an alum from the
archaeology program at the University of Washington, and am currently Affiliate
Faculty with the UW Anthropology Department. My main research interests
are zooarchaeology, marine mammal ecology, and historical biogeography.
I'm particularly interested in research on marine mammals that combines
aspects of modern population studies with applied zooarchaeological studies
of the same species.
I currently live in Bellingham,
WA, where I am running my own consulting business (Applied
Osteology). I am also developing collaborative projects with
researchers at UC Santa
Cruz (stable isotope analyses) and the Seattle
Aquarium (ancient DNA analyses).
Here are the details of
my c.v. and a series of PDF files of my dissertation (including all of
the raw measurement data for the growth curves of different fur seal skeletal
elements). I've also added a bunch of pictures of how my friends
and I occupy our spare time:
Some other links that may be
to hike all the trails in the Smoky Mountains? Then check out my
Mom's cool new book! "Day Hiker's Guide to All the Trails in the
Smoky Mountains" by Elizabeth (Liz) Etnier. She gives descriptions and
details on how to hike all the trails in the Smoky Mountains in 75 day
hikes. It can be seen on the publisher's web site: singingriverpublications.com
marine mammals page, with information on the effects of the El
Niño events on pinniped populations.
