This December, Claire Brandes’s essay “The Pleistocene Overkill Hypothesis: An Optimal Foraging Perspective” appears in The Classic, the Writing Intensive Program’s journal of undergraduate writing and research. Here, Brandes further explores the hypothesis on the demise of North American megafauna through an economic lens, by considering the advantages and disadvantages to hunting large game with regards to trade-offs in energy expenditure.
