    ..This matches with the earliest-dated archaeological sites, human-induced faunal extinctions, and deforestation, implying there was no long period of invisibility in either the archaeological or palaeoecological records...

    Landcare Research, Lincoln, Canterbury 7640, New Zealand
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 110:16910-5. 2013
    ..Our results show that moa lack extant ecological analogs, and their extinction represents an irreplaceable loss of function from New Zealand's terrestrial ecosystems. ..
