Radiocarbon dates on saiga antelope (Saiga tatarica) fossils from Yukon and the Northwest Territories / C.R. Harington, Jacques Cinq-Mars.

Title: Radiocarbon dates on saiga antelope (Saiga tatarica) fossils from Yukon and the Northwest Territories / C.R. Harington, Jacques Cinq-Mars.
Author(s): Harington, C. R.

Abstract: Saigas are presently confined to dry steppes and semideserts of Central Asia but spread much more widely in Pleistocene. Describes new saiga specimen from Bluefish Cave III, first record for species from Yukon; provides results of recently acquired radiocarbon analyses of Bluefish Cave and Baillie Islands specimens from Northwest Territories; compares measurements of Yukon and Northwest Territories specimens with other Pleistocene saiga specimens; and discusses palaeoenvironmental significance of finds.
