A Tale of Two Mastodons: Variation in Mammut from the late Pleistocene of North America

  • Friday, January 28, 2022
  • 1:30 PM–2:20 PM
  • Online via Teams

American mastodon (Mammut americanum) fossils have been found across North America, from the east to the west coast, from Alaska to Mexico, and nearly everywhere in between. In this talk I will examine the current understanding of mastodon morphology, distribution, and causes of extinction for North American mastodons through the exploration of two well-preserved specimens, “Max,” from southern California, and “Chas,” from South Carolina, with the ultimate goal of providing insight into what these differences mean.

Presenter: Kathlyn Smith, Georgia Southern University
