dc.description.abstractThis presentation focuses on comparisons of the Central Mesa Verde (CMV) and Northern Rio Grande (NRG) areas. Goals of the study included: 1.) Use NISP counts to assess relative abundance of turkey and artiodactyl bones in Central Mesa Verde (CMV) and N. Rio Grande (NRG) areas. 2.) Weight faunal groups by protein yield to assess relative nutritional contributions of turkeys and artiodactyls. 3.) Estimate costs (in extra maize production) of raising food turkeys. 4.) Evaluate “rigidity trap” hypothesis for replacement of deer by turkey.en_US
