Summary:
Annotation

Fossil finds from 10 years of research show the effects of climate change on North American mammals during the Pleistocene era, about one million to 400,000 years ago.

Annotation

"This comprehensive book makes an important contribution to the literature on Ice Age animals and climate. I expect it will be an important reference work for years to come."--Timothy H. Heaton, University of South Dakota "This book brings together the state-of-knowledge for this important high-altitude Pleistocene paleontological locality. This synthesis is overlain by an elegant placement of the work's importance in the body of the knowledge related to the single largest threat facing humans today, that of global climate change."--Karel Rogers, Grand Valley State University.  Read more...
