Dr. MacPhee studies the historical biogeography of the West Indies, using a combined tectonic/paleontological approach. This program of research has been in operation for more than 20 years and has involved work on all major and many of the smaller islands in the West Indies. His research has focused on systematic and functional anatomical investigations of the groups concerned. Dr. MacPhee also studies recent mammalian extinctions (last 40,000 years).
