On the other hand, confirmation that the valley bottoms were cut at the end of the late Vistulian and possibly also at the beginning of the Holocene

When El Nino disappeared early in the Holocene
, human populations on the coast slowly began to increase and to adopt agriculture, mostly crops domesticated elsewhere--gourds, squashes, beans, various tubers, and fruits.
This volume traces changes in the natural world during the Holocene
period, including the effects of human-environment relations.
Postdoctoral fellow Chris Sandom said that one of the surprising results is that woodland beetles were much less dominant in the previous interglacial period than in the early Holocene
, which shows that temperate ecosystems consisted not just of dense forest as often assumed, but rather a mosaic of forest and parkland.
Besides the evolution of the dominant tree taxa throughout the Holocene
in the Mediterranean region, pollen analyses record sporadically the presence of some types (i.e.
Using this method the researchers were able to construct a temperature chart stretching back 11,300 years - back to the beginning of the Holocene
AS THE HUMAN IMPACT on Earth "cut to the very bone" of deep time, as some have claimed, effectively ending the Holocene
Epoch and ushering in what should be called the Anthropocene?
