Berkeley,   Today, it is well known that human activities put larger animals at greater risk of extinction. Such targeting of the largest species is not new, however. Smith et al. show that biased loss of large-bodied mammal species from ecosystems is a signature of human impacts that has been following hominin migrations since the Pleistocene.

If the current trend continues, terrestrial mammal body. Approximately species of vertebrates are represented in the Quaternary fossil record of New Mexico.

Conkling Cavern is a paleontological and archaeological site located in Doña Ana County, New was excavated in the late s under the direction of Chester unately, Stock never published the fossil fauna from the excavations.

Instead, R. Conkling, who had drawn scientific attention to the site, published very preliminary lists of mammals identified by Stock and birds. There are 41 known localities containing mammoth remains from the Colorado Plateau: 24 in Arizona, 12 in Utah, 3 in New Mexico, and 2 in Colorado.

Of the 41 localities, 13 (32%; Arizona and Utah only) have yielded radiometric dates (14 C and U/Th); 10 (77%) of these have been the result of our investigations.

Regional timing of extinction is constrained by megafauna dates from Oregon’s Willamette Valley plus the Manis Mastodon, all within ∼ km north of the California cave sites, and Sporormiella declines documented from lake sediments in California’s central Sierra Nevada, about km to the south of the caves (53, 54).E-Book: This book chronicles the discovery and analysis of animal fossils found in one of the most important paleontological sites in the world--Porcupine Cave, located at an elevation of 9, feet in the Colorado Rocky Mountains.
