Abstract

Plant and vertebrate macrofossils in an early Holocene fossil packrat (Neotema sp.) midden with a radiocarbon age of 8640 [14]C yr B.P. are reported from the Chocolate Mountains, near the Salton Sea, Riverside County, California. An inventory of the midden has permitted a comparison of the modern flora and fauna of the site with that extant during the early Holocene. These observations are consistent with models of significant fall-winter precipitation in the Sonoran desert
