Late Quaternary Chorus Frog (Pseudacris) from the Channel Islands, California
The remains presented here represent the first description of a fossil anuran from the northern Channel Islands and it is now understood that a chorus frog lived on glacial-age Santarosae Island, yet it is not understood when its distribution was reduced to just the present two largest islands, Santa Rosa and Santa Cruz.

Abstract. Marine terraces are common on the Pacific Coast of North America and record interglacial high-sea stands superimposed on either stable or tectonically rising crustal blocks. Despite many
Evolution and dispersal of mammoths across the Northern Hemisphere
A detailed look at mammoth fossils globally is taken and it is suggested that the North American Columbian mammoth, thought to have arisen from a European species, probably evolved from a more advanced Asian species.

The Origin of Island Mammoths and the Quaternary Land Bridge of the Northern Channel Islands, California
Radiocarbon evidence of mid-Holocene mammoths stranded on an Alaskan Bering Sea island
A large radiocarbon dating project of Alaskan mammoth fossils is addressed by including mammoth specimens from Bering Sea islands known to have formed during the end-Pleistocene sea transgression, making it possible to reconstruct how mammoths became stranded in the Pribilofs and why this apparently did not happen on otherAlaskan Beringsea islands.

Comparative analysis of the mammoth populations on Wrangel Island and the Channel Islands
At the end of the Pleistocene the range of distribution of the woolly mammoth (Mammuthus primigenius) appreciably moved to the extreme northern portions of Eurasia. At the boundary of the Late

Interpreting the Paleozoogeography and Sea Level History of Thermally Anomalous Marine Terrace Faunas: A Case Study from the Last Interglacial Complex of San Clemente Island, California
Abstract. Marine invertebrate faunas with mixtures of extralimital southern and extralimital northern faunal elements, called thermally anomalous faunas, have been recognized for more than a
