We tested the use of fecal molecules as indicators of population change against existing population estimates from Cahokia - turns out it works pretty well!
We used a fecal molecule population reconstruction from Cahokia and paleoenvironmental data from the same core to show that flooding and droughts likely played a role in the site's depopulation
Fecal molecules show that the Cahokia region supported an indigenous population after its famous decline that has received very little academic attention until now
