  Brownbag Lectures: Final Days: Understanding Mechanisms of Extinction in Mammoths and Mastodonts   

Brownbag Lectures: Final Days: Understanding Mechanisms of Extinction in Mammoths and Mastodonts

  • Location: ISM Research & Collections Center, Springfield
  • Date: Wednesday, November 07, 2012, 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Presented by Dr. Chris Widga, Assistant Curator of Geology, Illinois State Museum

Many different scenarios have been invoked to explain the extinction of North American megafauna at the end of the last Ice Age. This multi-year project hopes to better define the distribution of different proboscidean taxa on the landscape, examine the evolution of their habitat, and narrow the chronological window of their extinction. Ultimately, all of these issues must be addressed before we can begin to ask the question, “who or what killed the megafauna”?
