Abstract:

This report provides a look at the Ice Age climates, plants and animals of western Missouri as interpreted from fossil remains recovered from spring sites in the Harry S. Truman Project area. The conclusion to be drawn from this look in the past is that the duration of one single set of climatic conditions, is short geologically. Prehistoric evidence from the last 50,000 years demonstrates that climates and the environments they fostered were episodic and subject to great change.
