Ecological and Environmental References

Associated with Species cited in NANODe, version 1.

This list is not meant to be exhaustive, but instead provides a starting place for further exploration.  It is primarily composed of modern and Quaternary studies, mostly in North America. If you are aware of an important reference appropriate for this listing that is not presented here, we would like to hear from you, so that we may add it to the list in the next version of NANODe.
