How did mammoths die? Scientists may have discovered the reason behind the mass extinction.
New findings published in the journal Global Ecology and Biogeography examine a worldwide study on animals and the seeds they eat, including a long-held assumption that still holds true: larger animals mainly stick to larger seeds. But just what does this mean for the environment?
