Abstract FAUNMAP is an electronic database documenting the late Quaternary (Pleistocene and Holocene) distribution of mammal species in the United States, developed at the Illinois State Museum with support from the National Science Foundation. The primary purpose of the database is to investigate evolution of mammalian communities, although individual species distributions are readily examined. With a Geographic Information System (GIS), changes in the distributions of individual species and… Expand
Archeological and paleontological records indicate that the pronghorn (Antilocapra americana) have a history of at least 20,000 years of occurrence within the current boundaries of Nebraska.Expand
The use of stable isotope ratio analysis to distinguish multiple prey kill events from mass kill events
Abstract Archaeologists working with prey animal bonebeds are interested in determining whether the animals were obtained through a single, mass kill event or instead accumulated over time fromExpand
Mortality Date Estimation Using Fetal Pronghorn Remains
Pronghorn (Antilocapra americana) fetal remains are sometimes recovered from archaeological contexts. Pronghorn have consistent reproductive schedules so their remains may provide information onExpand
Mortality date estimation using fetal pronghorn remains
To investigate the reliability of fetal remains for seasonality and mortality event assessment, bone size and tooth eruption were measured in a sample of modern fetal pronghorn remains with known mortality dates, and results indicate a strong correlation between bone sizeand mortality date, but no significant correlation between tooth eruption level and mortality date.

Horner Site Local Fauna: Vertebrates
This chapter discusses the fauna that would have been observed at the Horner site during the Paleoindian occupation, which is early Holocene in age, based on a series of radiometric dates from the various site areas. Expand

Changing Subsistence Patterns At Rogers Shelter
Publisher Summary This chapter discusses subsistence patterns at Rodgers shelter. Bird remains constituted less than 4% of the total faunal sample. The majority of bones were from wild turkey andExpand
Site Structure and Zooarchaeology at the Boar’s Tusk Site, Wyoming
Abstract The Boar’s Tusk site is a Late Prehistoric or Protohistoric short-term probable campsite in southwestern Wyoming. Pronghorn predominates the bone assemblage. Site structure at Boar’s Tusk isExpand
