Radiocarbon chronology of the early human occupation of Argentina
This paper reports the compilation and initial analysis of a database of 14C dates from archaeological sites in Argentina for the period 13,000 and 7000 14C BP. The spatial and temporal distributionExpand
Isotopic ecology and human palaeodiets in the lower basin of the Colorado River, Buenos Aires province, Argentina
Results of stable isotope analyses are presented for the study of human subsistence in the lower basin of the Colorado River, Buenos Aires province, Argentina. This paper provides the most currentExpand
Distribution parameters of guanaco (Lama guanicoe), pampas deer (Ozotoceros bezoarticus) and marsh deer (Blastocerus dichotomus) in Central Argentina: Archaeological and paleoenvironmental
Abstract In this paper we use non-ambiguous collections and sightings data from the 18th century to generate potential distribution models of three species of South American ungulates. TheseExpand
Radiocarbon trends in the pampean region (Argentina). biases and Demographic patterns during the final late pleistocene and holocene
This paper compiles a database of radiocarbon dates of archaeological sites that are currently available for the Pampean region. Based on the probability distribution of radiocarbon dates from thisExpand
Small mammal remains recovered from two archaeological sites in the middle and lower Negro River valley (Late Holocene, Argentina): Taphonomic issues and paleoenvironmental implications
This paper presents the results of a taphonomic and paleoenvironmental analysis of small mammal remains recovered from the Negro Muerto and Angostura 1 archaeological sites. These sites (ca. 0.5 andExpand
A Late Pleistocene/early Holocene archaeological 14C database for South America and the Isthmus of Panama: Palaeoenvironmental contexts and demographic interpretations
The number of published archaeological radiocarbon dates for the late Pleistocene and early Holocene periods in the Americas has greatly increased in recent years. This has been matched by anExpand
The human occupation of northwestern Patagonia (Argentina): Paleoecological and chronological trends
Abstract Archaeological radiocarbon databases are being increasingly used as a proxy of past demographic trends. In this paper we compile and analyze an extensive database of paleoecologicalExpand
Constraining the time of extinction of the South American fox Dusicyon avus (Carnivora, Canidae) during the late Holocene
Abstract A mass extinction affected South America during the late Pleistocene and early Holocene, when megamammals and large mammals disappeared. Several carnivores became extinct, including theExpand
Rapid radiation of humans in South America after the last glacial maximum: A radiocarbon-based study
The results suggest that the earliest chronological threshold for the peopling of South America should be between 16,600 and 15,100, with a mean estimated date ~ 15,500 cal BP (post Last Glacial Maximum). Expand
