For this project, Mike will focus specifically on building a working database of the more than 100,000 faunal samples in order to facilitate a diachronic understanding of the biogeography of the area and investigate the impact of climate change on marine fauna, particularly during the Neoglacial period.
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).
Glacial readvances occurred several times during the Neoglacial period (Mann et al.
Site 10, at the neoglacial terminal moraine, is 4 km from a low elevation area that was not covered by ice during the neoglacial period, and which supports extensive stands of mature western hemlock, Sitka spruce, and mountain hemlock (Fig.
This multi-proxy study of three lakes located in northernmost Ungava shows that these ecosystems remained largely stable over the Neoglacial period, which followed a period of pronounced regional change during the mid-Holocene.
These dates correlate with the marked cooling of the early Neoglacial Period (Mann et al.
Paul Island and dated from the Neoglacial Period, had similar stable isotope values of [[delta].
