Abstract (summary)
Recent work on NW Banks Island in the western Canadian Arctic Archipelago (CAA) has overturned the long-held paradigm that the area was never glaciated. However, occurrence of rare remains of mammoth from Banks and Melville islands (25.9-24.6 cal ka BP) suggests herb-rich tundra persisted for much of the Wisconsinan, and constrains the timing of glaciation.
