I read about that study earlier tonight. I certainly hope the researchers aren't full of poop!
I do wonder whether/how they know for sure that the decline in poop spores correlates to a decline in the number of megafuana. What if the diet and/or digestive systems of mammoths evolved somehow during that period that led to less spores in the poo? For example. Or what if a bunch of them moved somewhere else to poop in a different lake?
