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… 


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.

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 on

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.

Walker's mammals of the world

From aardwolves and bandicoots to yapoks and zorillas, Ernest P. Walker's Mammals of the World is the most comprehensive-the pre-eminent-reference work on mammals. Now, completely revised and

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 is

Pliocene Pronghorns of Florida

Two genera and species of Antilocaprinae occur in Hemphillian (middle Pliocene) deposits of Florida and represents the ancestry of the Recent American pronghorn.

Archaic and Late Prehistoric Adaptation in Southwestern Wyoming: the Frontier Pipeline Excavations

In 1983 P-III Associates conducted a data recovery program on six prehistoric sites (48UT390, 48UT199, 48UT779, 48UT370, 48UT445 and 48UT377) near Church Butte in southwestern Wyoming for the

Fossil Bison and Artifacts From an Early Altithermal Period Arroyo Trap in Wyoming

The Hawken site is a steep-sided arroyo into which small groups of bison were driven and slaughtered. The bison, which date about 4500 B.C. during the Altithermal period, are an extinct variant (B.
