Pleistocene Dung Beetles By Frank-Thorsten Krell
Paperback: $7.60
Prints in 3-5 business days
Denver Museum of Nature & Science Annals 5 Abstract. Nine aphodiine dung beetle species are recorded from Pleistocene sediments of the Ziegler Reservoir near Snowmass Village, Colorado, U.S.A.... More > Insect remains from this deposit range from 125,000 to 77,000 yr BP, and are unique in their species richness and in their occurrence at high elevation (2720 meters). Three extant species occur: Aphodius (Dialytodius) decipiens Horn, A. (Planolinellus) vittatus Say, and A. (Planolinoides) duplex LeConte. Six unidentified species are also described, belonging to the genus Aphodius. All species are relatively small coprophagous dwellers known as endocoprids. The faunal richness of this site suggests a speciose dung beetle fauna existed at high elevations in this region, and intimates the importance of this site as one of the richest Pleistocene dung beetle sites in North America.< Less

Anarcho-primitivism meets psychological science to provide a unique perspective on the mismatch between our evolved human nature and the demands of life in a global industrial civilization. Our... More > sophisticated psychological systems reflect a finely tuned response to more than two million years of life in small, broadly egalitarian foraging bands. Civilization represents a catastrophic disruption of this response, redirecting our natural proclivities in the service of a planet-devouring machine. But all is not lost. The very elements of our psychology that keep us yoked to civilization’s drivetrain are also the source of our potential liberation, lynchpins that can be released as we work to reclaim our freedom.< Less

More > curve. According to the curve, these geologic units with altitudes up to +12 meters were deposited by the ocean when sea level was approximately -25 meters below present. Glacioisostatic influences from the advance and retreat of the great North American ice sheets may have adjusted the altitudes of these units, which would explain these discrepancies. This book also includes new information and ages regarding Virginia's coastal plain geology and provides some insight into possible future sea levels.< Less
