Oxytropidoceras posted a topic in Fossil NewsA great paper about classic Siberian mammoth bone beds. Nikolskiy, P.A., Basilyan, A.E., Sulerzhitsky, L.D. and Pitulko, V.V., 2010. Prelude to the extinction: revision of the Achchagyi–Allaikha and Berelyokh mass accumulations of mammoth. Quaternary International, 219(1), pp.16-25. https://www.researchgate.net/publication/248478864_Prelude_to_the_extinction_Revision_of_the_Achchagyi-Allaikha_and_Berelyokh_mass_accumulations_of_mammoth https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Pavel_Nikolskiy/publications In part, the abstract reads: "The formation of the burials is a direct consequence of short but strong climatic warming (Bølling Oscillation) that resulted in many unfavorable environmental conditions. Among these, the increase of snow cover and stronger spring floods were very notable. Bølling warming is a model of the large-scale Holocene event. Mass death of mammoths during the Bølling phase was a prelude to their final extinction." Also, there is: Nikolskiy, P.A., Sulerzhitsky, L.D. and Pitulko, V.V., 2011. Last straw versus Blitzkrieg overkill: climate- driven changes in the Arctic Siberian mammoth population and the Late Pleistocene extinction problem.
