Abstract

In the Spotlight report "New Information from Ancient Genomes" by Sandra J. Ackerman (September-October), I question the statement on page 327 that Eske Willerslev's data "constitute a strong case that climate change-not hunting-caused the last great extinction." Others argue that the extinction of the megafauna caused changes in the vegetation, not the other way around.
