Connie Barlow summarizes the world-wide paleontological evidence in support of the Overkill Theory of "extinction of the massive", proposed by Paul S. Martin. In this "Coming Home to North America" program delivered as a keynote presentation in 2004 in Lexington Kentucky (EarthSpirit Rising Conference), Barlow advocates a deep-time perspective for today's work in conservation biology and biodiversity protection of endangered species. Barlow has written a great deal on this topic; for online viewing of published articles google "Goodbye Eternal Frontier" and also "Rewilding for Evolution." The "Pleistocene Rewilding" movement grounds its advocacy in this deep-time and overkill perspective, as well.
