Abstract

This paper discusses the results of insect fossil studies from the Chihuahuan Desert region, along the Rio Grande River in and around Big Bend National Park, Texas. Insects indicative of more severe aridity are first recorded at about 6 000 yr B. P., but some temperate species persisted about 2 500 yr B. P. After this, only desert dwellers are recorded
