What role, if any, did paleo-Indians play in the mass extinction of
megafauna in North America? Were the mammoths hunted to oblivion, or was
it climatic changes alone that did them in?
Also, what about other parts of the world? I've heard about the
Maoris being responsible for hunting the giant flightless bird called the
moa to extinction (and possibly other species as well) in New Zealand.
