    Annotated Bibliography of Quaternary Vertebrates of Northern North America
    Book Description:

    This book focuses on highlights (species mentioned, locality, geological age, stratigraphic positions, etc.) of nearly 1000 items published between 1821 and 2000, dealing with the remains of vertebrates that lived from about 2 million to 5000 years ago.

    This site (SLT 067) on the downslope side of USGS triangulation station ILNUK overlooks a bend in the Holitna River in the Kuskokwim drainage of southwestern Alaska (Figure 10-4). It may be as old as 4390 ± 100 BP (AA-1721, based on a radiocarbon date on calcined bone). Several dispersed calcined bone fragments apparently come from a cervid (Cervidae), and tooth enamel fragments may represent either bison (Bison) or wapiti (Cervus) according to...

  8. INTRODUCTION TO THE RADIOCARBON-DATE TABLE
    (pp. 329-332)

    This radiocarbon-date table (Table 1) attempts to list systematically [arbitrarily following Simpson (1945) because it corresponds to the organization of CMN’s Quaternary Zoology Collection and my Quaternary Mammal Species File] direct dates on bone (mammalian soft tissues, beaver-cut sticks, ground squirrel nesting grasses, and droppings, etc., being exceptions) of vertebrates (fishes, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals) from northern North America (Canada, Alaska, and Greenland). Unless otherwise mentioned, the dates are on bone collagen.

    To be most useful to paleontologists, zoologists, and zooarchaeologists, the taxa are grouped as follows: Class, Order, Family, Genus, and Species. Following this information are columns giving...
