This book is the first annotated bibliography of Quatenary vertebrates of Canada, Alaska, and Greenland. It focuses on highlights (species mentioned, locality, geological age, stratigraphic positions, etc.) of nearly 1000 items published between 1821 and 2000, dealing with the remains of fishes, amphibians, reptiles and, mainly, mammals that lived from about 2 million to five thousand years ago. A significant feature of the book is the extensive radiocarbon-date table - a first attempt to systematically and comprehensively record direct dates on vertebrate fossils from northern North America. It features more than 2000 dates listed by genus, species, date, laboratory number, locality, specimen description and references/remarks, this table will allow students of extinctions-particularly near the end of the Pleistocene about ten thousand years ago-a much clearer view of its nature and timing in northern North America.
