QUATERNARY VERTEBRATE SITES: SOUTHWESTERN USA AND NORTHWESTERN MEXICO

rule

Separate site lists having links to the various sites are given for Arizona, Southern California, New Mexico, Southern Nevada, Trans-Pecos Texas, Chihuahua, and Sonora.

Each site has a brief location description, many have comments, and a list of taxa recovered from the site is given. The "Literature" given for a site does not pretend to be complete, but should be sufficient to allow the reader to access further information if desired.

Where the taxonomy has changed, the currently accepted names are listed. For many taxa, the name under which a taxon was recorded in the literature is given below the currently accepted name in smaller type and inset from the left margin; other annotations also may appear in this format. Taxa represented in the UTEP Paleobiology Collection that have either not appeared in the literature or have appeared only in lists without being attributed are indicated by the UTEP acronym.

At present, site data for sites in California and Nevada have only the most basic information; these will be updated as time progresses.
