Abstract

The magnificent collection of mammalian remains procured by the Los Angeles Museum from the asphalt deposits of Rancho La Brea furnishes undoubtedly the most complete single record of the mammalian life of the Pleistocene which has come to the attention of the paleontologist. Distinguished alike by a remarkably perfect preservation of its materials and by a great variety of types represented, this collection affords opportunities for research such as are rarely encountered in studies relating to the life of the past.
