Along with a team of some of the best researchers in the world, Dr. Stevenson researched and developed new techniques that changed the debate about human history and the demographical dynamics on Easter Island.

The finds have been published in a fascinating article in PNAS (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences). An article that describes the study was also published in the Daily Mail, and explains how the study challenges long-held beliefs about population collapse.
