The Extinct Ice Age Mammals of North America


A video of a non-dino lecture that may be of interest: a review of all the Ice Age mammal genera that went extinct in North America, issues in their distribution, and theories about their extinctions, by University of Washington Anthropology Professor Donald Grayson. 


NOTE: Dr. Grayson uses "raw" (uncalibrated) radiocarbon dates, so the dates don't match the calibrated calendar-year dates used in most modern media sources, which give older dates.
