A discussion of the latest peer-reviewed research in paleoecology, human evolution, and physical anthropology plus tips on getting research done using statistical computing.
In an article in preview in the journal Ecology, Joshua Miller reports the results of a study in which he analyzed the distribution of elk skeletal remains (shed antlers and neonate remains) across Yellowstone National Park. The spatial distribution of shed antlers was as good at predicting bull elk geographic use as aerial surveys, and neonate bones were great predictors of known calving areas. This study demonstrates that these large ungulates tend to die where they lived, and that the spatial........ Read more »
