The Analysis of a Late Holocene Bison Skull from the Ashley National Forest, Utah (2004)

DOCUMENT Kenneth P. Cannon.

In 2003 a partial bison skull was recovered by Ashley National Forest archeologist Brian Storm from an elevation of 3840 m (12,600 ft) AMSL in the Uinta Mountains. The partial skull consists of a portion of the frontal, occipital region, and horn cores including horn sheaths. The presence of the horn sheaths is of particular interest for the ecological information they can provide. Through the analysis of the individual cones of the horn sheath a record of the animal’s dietary and migration...


Ancient Caribbean-Mainland Plant and Animal Translocations: Cultural, Biogeographic and Biodiversity Legacy (2015)

Citation DOCUMENT Lee Newsom. Lourdes Pérez Iglesias.

The Caribbean’s pre-peopling flora and fauna were the culminations of both vicariant and long-distance dispersal processes, coupled with evolution in relative isolation spanning more than 20 Mya. Human colonization beginning around 7,000 years ago coincided with extinctions of megalonychid sloths and giant flightless owls-- the archipelago’s only large terrestrial vertebrates-- probably precipitating the first human-induced trophic cascades and initiating the first of a series of...

Bio-cultural exchange and human health - past and present (2016)

Citation DOCUMENT Naomi Sykes. Holly Miller. Karis Baker.

There is growing concern about the impact of biological exchange on human health, the WHO correlating shifts in biodiversity with the decline of medicinal biota and the emergence and spread of infectious diseases. Paradoxically, human desire to improve health and well-being has been the very motivation behind the worldwide translocation of many species. This is, in part, because ethnomedicine tends to target preferentially species that are exotic, the belief being that geographical distance is...


Biogeography of Neandertals: The Southern Italian Middle Paleolithic (2015)

Citation DOCUMENT Kelsey Knox.

Most research on the Middle Paleolithic in southern Italy has focused on the region of Apulia. This research has been extensive and productive, and so it stands to reason that other less researched regions of southern Italy hold similar potential. This paper uses predictive niche modeling to identify Neandertal niche from site location and environmental variables in Apulia, and applies the modeled niche to under researched regions to predict locations of new Middle Paleolithic sites. The model...

From Empire States to Country Estates – The Story of the Fallow Deer’s Global Conquest 6k BP to Present (2017)

Citation DOCUMENT Naomi Sykes. Holly Miller. Karis Baker.

It took millennia, but the European fallow deer (Dama dama) a beautiful cervid species native to the eastern Mediterranean has gradually been transported around the world - its modern distribution ranging from New Zealand to the Caribbean. The translocation of fallow deer was accompanied by a remarkably consistent culture of hunting and emparkment that altered landscape and environment. Using a combination of (zoo)archaeology, isotope analysis and genetic research to reconstruct the timing and...

Numic Fire: Biogeography of Foragers and Fire in the Great Basin (2015)

Citation DOCUMENT Ashley Grimes. Brian Codding.

Fire is increasingly recognized as a central evolutionary force shaping the earth’s ecosystems. This is especially observable in the fire-prone American West, where indigenous populations frequently used low-intensity burns to modify their habitats for myriad purposes. Given the variability of environments within the Great Basin, the effects of anthropogenic burning  likely had different impacts depending on local ecological and subsistence contexts. To understand where and why anthropogenic...

Wild resources and domestic plants in the South American farmer’s frontier (2016)

Citation DOCUMENT Gustavo Neme. Adolfo Gil. Miguel Giardina. Clara Otaola.

Southern Mendoza region has been considered the meridional boundary of South American farmers, which arrive at this region ca 2000 years BP. At the time of the Spanish arrival, there was coexistence among north Patagonian hunter gatherers and southern Andean farmers along Atuel and Diamante basins. However the real impact of the first domesticates (corn, squash, quinoa and beans) as well as how their latitudinal distribution could vary through time are still on debate. Different lines of...
