Abstract

Although many features of the Rancho La Brea Pleistocene occurrence are known to every student of vertebrate paleontology, much material has remained virtually untouched or has received little study since the time of the excavations. This is unfortunate inasmuch as the large numbers of individuals of certain forms offer opportunities for faunal studies rarely found when dealing with fossil collections. A striking example is furnished by the remains of the dire wolf group.
