Abstract

The Lamb Spring insect fauna is a type of assemblage, containing both prairie and alpine tundra species. Accelerator dating of insect fossil specimens from the two ecological groups helped resolve the paleoecological problem. The dates reveal that what appeared to be an ecological mixing was probably a taphonomic problem, wherein full-glacial-age fossils were probably reworked into latest Wisconsin sediments
