Their Classification and Evolution

Bison have been present on the North American continent for at least some 3 million years, migrating from Asia late in the Pliocene.The arrival of humans on the continent during the most recent period of glacial activity put into motion evolutionary dynamics that resulted, first, in the appearance of the small and increasingly numerous bison, then, on at least two occassions nearly brought that form of life to extinction.

Thomas Jefferson, the Megalonyx, The Next Step

and the Legacy

Thomas Jefferson, an extraordinary communicator, is often considered to be among the most acceomplished demonstrators of the American Enlightenment. Among the many subject areas of interest to Jefferson was natural history, and his writings in this subject area, although rare, were superlative demonstrations of the thoughts of the time and direction in which the youthful science of natural history was moving. This book looks first and foremost at Jefferson's grasp and practice of science: it focuses in particular upon his efforts to document, describe, interpret and preserve the remains of parts of the skeleton of an extinct ground sloth from what is now West Virgini, the first extinct land mammal to be described from the continent; it reviews how his science has been viewed, overlooked, or criticized since he lived; and it expands upon the science of the ground sloth that has unfolded since he initially authored the first account of the existence of this form of life on the continent.
