Abstract

Quaternary occurrences of voles of the genus Phenacomys south of the North American continental glaciation range in age from Kansan through early Recent times and are mapped from twenty fossil localities. Phenacomys cannot be used as an index fossil, but makes a good climatic indicator because of its modern boreal affinities. It is largely confined to the present day Canadian and Hudsonian Life Zones of North America.
