This chapter discusses the fossil specimens of squirrels from Porcupine Cave, characterizing the taxonomic diversity and patterns of variation of the sciurid assemblage from various sites in Porcupine Cave. It also explores the implications of the sciurid assemblage for biostratigraphic reconstructions, and discusses the temporal environmental variation and evolutionary history of the Rocky Mountain Sciuridae.

Keywords:   squirrels, Porcupine Cave, sciurid assemblage, biostratigraphic reconstructions, environment variation, Rocky Mountain, Sciuridae
