The present correction is in regards to our article entitled ‘Rewriting the history of an extinction—was a population of Steller's sea cows (Hydrodamalis gigas) at St Lawrence Island also driven to extinction?’ Following publication, the samples were deposited in the George Mason University Biology Department Genetic Samples Collection in December 2015 with the identifiers as given in table 1. The sample identified as Crerar006 belongs to the Smithsonian and was deposited in the US National Museum mammalogy collection. We acknowledge that the deposition of bone samples in a public repository prior to the submission of a manuscript is expected by the journal.
