DescriptionFrom the 16th International Radiocarbon Conference held in Gronigen, Netherlands, June 16-20, 1997.
AbstractThe first radiocarbon dates for the famous monuments of European Scythia were produced for the Kelermes, Seven Brothers, Solocha and Chertomlyk barrows (burial mounds) by both accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS) and conventional methods. The obtained 14C dates confirmed the traditional archaeological chronology, which was based on the analysis of written data and typological comparisons of Scythian artifacts with similar objects found in the Ancient East and Greece. The 14C dates for the European Scythian monuments are compared with the Asian ones. The 14C chronology of the European Scythian monuments shows chronological synchronisms between the Asiatic and European monuments. The calibrated ages for the investigated barrows generally agree with the archaeological data.

Nocturnal rodent populations and associated vegetation with implications of human use at Saguaro National Monument, ArizonaJohnson, R. Roy; Duncan, Douglas Keith, 1960- (The University of Arizona., 1989)I obtained densities of nocturnal rodents in the saguaro (Carnegiea gigantea) forest of Saguaro National Monument, Arizona with live trapping techniques, in 1984 and 1985. I sampled vegetation density, percent cover, and foliage height diversity. My objective was to determine if humans influenced nocturnal rodents and their habitat. Rodent populations and vegetation were analyzed through 2-way analysis of variance. Few significant differences were determined for rodent numbers between experimental and control plots. My findings show that minimal impact has occurred on rodent populations and on vegetation by humans in Saguaro National Monument.
