David Kilby is an archeologist at Texas State University, and an expert on the paleoindian cultures of the North American plains, a lifeway that became highly specialized and dependent on the bison. Here he describes how the bison became so dominant in those grasslands in the years following the great die-off of mammoths, mastodons, horses, sabre-toothed tigers and other megafauna at the end of the Pleistocene epoch.
