New papers and preprints on antillean vertebrate extinctions now available!

Hi there internet surfers and blog-verse travelers, what a great way to start the new year. There are several new research papers and findings now available on Cuban - generally Antillean  - Late Quaternary land vertebrate extinctions. A lot of exiting and revealing new data, on which I will expand in future blog posts; hopefully, soon.

In the mean time, here I share some links for those interested in our new data and preprints.

Our new paper on Cuba bats is now available on my ResearchGate page here, or on the Novitates Caribaea journal page, here. To see a post on this research, visit here.

Three of our preprints posted on BioRxiv are available there, and they are citable as:
