  • In order to evaluate the contribution that Clovis-era hunting made to the end-Pleistocene extinctions, we must examine the North American empirical evidence fairly, without using models from different continents and different taxa as blueprints for the process of human hunting impacts. Before trying to decide how (or if) Clovis hunting could have had a significant effect on American megamammal extinctions,1 a worthwhile thing to know or estimate is the size of the continental populations of… CONTINUE READING
