Such debates have broad relevance since issues of intensification using resources of the kind that Hayden (1990) terms r-selected, the impact of global climatic pulses like the late Holocene Neoglacial (e.
The colder episode registered at Likoaeng in Phase B corresponds well to Neoglacial conditions reported elsewhere in southern Africa during the first millennium BC that resulted from northward latitudinal shifts of frontal systems and relatively strong atmospheric circulation.

Correlating the shifts in body size with climatic shifts does not appear to explain the fluctuating sizes of Pacific cod between 2550 BC and 80 BC, which occurred during the generally cool and wet conditions of the Neoglacial period (the first major postglacial cooling period from approximately 2500 BC to AD 1).
It is noteworthy that this entire period occurred during the Neoglacial, a period of generally cooler and wetter oceanic conditions.

A pre-LIA Neoglacial age is conceivable, but Neoglacial moraines apparently do not occur in isolation from LIA moraines in the closest alpine area in which such moraines have been mapped, the Torngat Mountains of Labrador.
