North American Fossil Mammal Systematics Database

North American Mammalian Paleofaunal Database

Two extensive databases on North American fossil mammals maintained by John Alroy. The first one concentrates on their taxonomy, the second one on their occurrences. For North American forms you can find here some information not contained in my database, such as more detailed taxonomic histories or occurences beyond the type locality. In some cases I resorted to this database to supplement my own data, but with these few exceptions my compilation is independent.
