    Lakes in one form or another have characterized the western Mojave Desert since at least Miocene time. The most recent of these, Lake Thompson, developed in the late Pleistocene, when it covered as much as km 2 and rose to at least m above sea level. During Holocene time, the lake desiccated, and is now represented by Rogers, Rosamond, and Buckhorn dry lakes, which may flood up to An s trip across the Mojave Desert from Cajon Pass to Fort Mohave on the Colorado River and excerpts from other related subjects.

The type specimen (UCMP ) that defines this species is named Merriamoceros coronatus taking after its discoverer, J.M. is known from a partial skull (a single fragmentary horn or antler). Remains of Merriamoceros were found in rock formations dating to the Early Miocene period, to million years type locality is Barstow, which is in a Barstovian terrestrial Class: Mammalia.

Geologic investigations of late Miocene–early Pliocene deposits in Mohave and Cottonwood valleys provide important insights into the early evolution of the lower Colorado River system. In the latest Miocene these valleys were separate depocenters; the floor of Cottonwood Valley was ∼ m higher than the floor of Mohave Valley.

A new study shows that deer species capable of building and shedding their antlers already existed about 20 to 15 million years ago, in the Miocene.

The finding sheds new light on .In November,a group of students from the Webb School, Claremont, California, visited the fossil beds of the Barstow Miocene under the leadership of Mr. Raymond M. Alf. On this occasion William Webb had the good fortune to find the remains of a peccary skull and jaw to be described in this paper.

The specimens were generously presented to the California Institute.This point is primarily found in the dry lake areas of central California and into central Nevada. These points have not been reported into the coastal regions of California.

Lake Mohave has been reported into northern Baja California and at the La Playa site in northern Sonora, Mexico.
