Quaternary Environments (ISBN10: 0340691514; ISBN13: 9780340691519)
ISBN13: 978-0340691519
ISBN10: 0340691514

Summary: The second edition of this authoritative introduction to the global environmental fluctuations of the Quaternary period has been thoroughly revised and updated, and now includes two new chapters: one on Quaternary soils and sediments, and one on the Milankovitch theory and its implications for Quaternary climatic oscillations. The book draws on examples from every continent, including Antarctica, and features a superb range of maps and illustrations. The time span co
vered includes relevant events during the Tertiary which set the stage for the Quarternary glaciations and associated changes in climate, vegetation, and prehistoric human development. Focusing on the interactions between geological, biological and hydrological processes, the book explores the effects of accelerating human impact on the environment and considers how far evidence from the Quartenary may be useful in predicting future environmental change.
  • Thoroughly revised and up-dated, includes two new chapters
  • Global focus - examples from every continent, including Antartica
  • Focuses on interactions between geological, biological and hydrological processes
  • Explores the effects of accelerating human impact on the environment and considers how far evidence from the Quaternary may be useful in predicting future environmental change
