New Skeletal Remains of Mammuthus columbi from Glynn County, Georgia with Notes on their Historical and Paleoecological Significance

  title={New Skeletal Remains of Mammuthus columbi from Glynn County, Georgia with Notes on their Historical and Paleoecological Significance},
  author={David B Patterson and Alfred J. Mead and Robert A. Bahn},
Abstract Although Mammuthus columbi (Columbian Mammoth) remains have been collected and extensively studied throughout the United States, limited in situ material has been discovered in Georgia. Here we describe new Columbian Mammoth material from Clark Quarry, a recently excavated late-Pleistocene locality near Brunswick, GA, and discuss their historical and paleoecological significance. The site has yielded 12 genera of birds, 18 genera of amphibians and reptiles, and 12 species of mammals…

Age criteria for the african elephant: loxodonta a. africana
Thirty age groups are described and illustrated, which are related to the progress of eruption and wear of the six teeth in each side of the lower jaw, which indicate an upper age limit of about 60 years, which is compatible with fuller information on Indian elephants.

Isotopic biogeochemistry ( 13 C, 18 O) of mammalian enamel from African Pleistocene hominid sites
The carbon and oxygen isotope composition of carbonate in enamel hydroxylapatite can provide information on photosynthetic pathways of plants at the base of food webs, and on hydrological conditions.
A warm thermal enclave in the Late Pleistocene of the South‐eastern United States
Physical and biological evidence supports the probable existence of an enclave of relatively warm climate located between the Southern Appalachian Mountains and the Atlantic Ocean in the United States during the Last Glacial Maximum, and similar processes of change took place under both ice‐house and greenhouse climates.
