This paper presents the historical ecology and biogeography of the addax, Addax nasomaculatus, in Egypt from the Late Pleistocene to the present, and tracks the evolution of its population distribution there during this period. Human hunting principally caused the extinction of this hippotraginae during the 1960s in Egypt, as well as throughout the entire northern part of the Sahara.
