University of Chicago Press

Humans have affected virtually all life on the planet. Some ecosystems have fallen apart. Remote ones remain filled with biological treasures. This chapter asks: When populations were smaller in our distant past, were our impacts less? Or, did we drive the blitzkrieg of fellow mammals only one hundred centuries ago? More to the point, did prey naiveté contribute to the success of North America's first hunting peoples?

Keywords:   ecosystems, life, prey, hunting peoples, North America
