Characterization of obsidian from the Tibetan Plateau by XRF and NAA
The Tibetan Plateau is the highest contiguous terrain on the planet. It is cold, dry, poor in oxygen, and one of the last habitats to have been colonized by our species. Here we present the first… Expand
On the association of giant short-faced bear (Arctodus simus) and brown bear (Ursus arctos) in late Pleistocene North America
Abstract Climate change and human impacts are often implicated in Quaternary megafaunal extinctions. The discovery of associated remains of extinct giant short-faced bears (Arctodus simus) and… Expand
Archaeological assessment reveals Earth’s early transformation through land use
A synthetic history of human land use Humans began to leave lasting impacts on Earth's surface starting 10,000 to 8000 years ago. Through a synthetic collaboration with archaeologists around the… Expand
Motility factors identified in supernatants of human cholangiocarcinoma cell lines.
Motility factors, e.g. SF/HGF (scatter factor/hepatocyte growth factor) or AMF (autocrine motility factor) can influence the migration of tumor cells in vitro and may facilitate invasive growth and… Expand
An Experimental Approach to Understanding Burnt Fish Bone Assemblages within Archaeological Hearth Contexts
The Richardson Island site, an early Holocene site located in Haida Gwaii, has produced an extensive lithic assemblage. The faunal assemblage from this highly stratified, raised beach site is derived… Expand
