Book Description :

European Glacial Landscapes: The Role of Glaciers in Shaping the Landscape of Europe brings together relevant experts on the history of glaciers and their impact on the landscape of the main regions of Europe. In some regions the largest recorded glaciations occurred before the Last Glacial Cycle, in one of the major glacial cycles of the Middle Pleistocene. However, the best-preserved evidence of glaciation in the landscape is from the Last Glacial Cycle (Late Pleistocene). In many areas, the European glaciers recorded their last maximum expansion from around between 29,000 to 19,000 years ago, when ice-sheets covered all the Scandinavian countries, Finland, much of the British Isles, the shores of the Baltic Sea and Central-Europe until roughly the present Rhine River. The glaciers covered also large areas of the main European mountains, such as the Urals, the Carpathians, the Alps, the Balkans, the Pyrenees, etc. Even in the southernmost mountains glaciers were present, sometimes forming substantial ice caps with cirque glaciers on relatively low mountains bordering the Mediterranean Sea. The book examines the landscapes produced by glaciers throughout Europe, from the earliest recorded glaciations to the most impressive and most obvious legacy of the Last Glacial Cycle.In addition to the geomorphological effects of glaciations, the book also examines the chronology and evolution of the past glaciers, with the aim of understanding the interrelationship between glacial expansion and climate changes on this continent. Glacial expansion and retreat occurred numerous times over the last million years, with cold periods interrupted by short warm periods, interglacials, with massive shrinkage of the glaciers. Curiously, each of glacial expansions in Europe reached limits very similar to the previous ones, erasing in part previous landforms and deposits. In fact, the glaciers of the Last Glacial Cycle erased most of the landforms left by the previous cycles, although with a few notable exceptions. The book also analyses these older glacial landforms that can sometimes still be seen in the landscape today. Together, the glacial landforms and associated deposits of Europe represent highly valuable heritage of past environmental changes and their consequences on the layout of rivers, soil characteristics, coastal, lowlands and highland landforms. This analysis serves to better understand the succession of Pleistocene glaciations and the intervening interglacial periods and to examine their possible continental synchrony or asynchrony of past glacier behaviour. The ultimate result of this analysis is to provide important new insights and information on the origin and effects of climatic and geomorphological variability across Europe. Provides a synthesis that highlights the main similarities or differences, through both space and time, during the maximum recorded expansions of Pleistocene glaciers in Europe Features research from experts in glacial geomorphology, palaeo-glaciology, palaeo-climatology and palaeo-oceanography on glacial expansion in Europe Includes access to a website with an interactive map, photos of glacial features, and geospatial data about the landscapes related to glacial expansions in Europe

Book Description :

"The results provide revolutionary insights into the glacial climate of Stage 3 and the landscapes and resources that influenced late Palaeolithic life-styles. New hypotheses are offered to explain why and how Neanderthal and modern human societies chose where to settle and why they moved on in the face of ever-changing conditions. Above all, the models presented in this volume raise a host of new questions about differences in the human responses to climate and environment, not just between the two separate human species but also between those who arrived early and those who followed later."--BOOK JACKET.

Book Description :

Ecosystem Service Potentials and Their Indicators in Postglacial Landscapes: Assessment and Mapping provides valuable guidance for anyone involved with ecosystem service potential monitoring, use and management--from landscape ecologists and environmental managers, to policymakers and environmental economists. The book highlights effective measurement tools for evaluating the overall potential of ecosystem services from multiple perspectives. Beginning with an introduction to ecosystem services and the theoretical assumptions and objectives associated with their assessment, the book goes on to outline interdisciplinary methods of evaluation and analysis that are fully supported and illustrated throughout using an insightful case study focused on Wigry National Park. A range of different spatial reference units are also discussed, followed by chapters on both analytical and synthetic approaches to identifying service supply potential. In addition, the use of services and the impact of these uses on the assessment of potential is included, along with a discussion of the future shape of ecosystem service assessment. Outlines a transdisciplinary, holistic approach to assessing the overall potential of ecosystems and landscapes to support different ecosystem services Proposes a range of direct, indirect, simple and complex measurement indicators for multifaceted estimation and mapping Presents tools and guidelines to help shape effective decision-making processes in nature conservation and environmental planning

Book Description :

The Neanderthals populated western Europe from nearly 250,000 to 30,000 years ago when they disappeared from the archaeological record. In turn, populations of anatomically modern humans, Homo sapiens, came to dominate the area. Seeking to understand the nature of this replacement, which has become a hotly debated issue, Paul Mellars brings together an unprecedented amount of information on the behavior of Neanderthals. His comprehensive overview ranges from the evidence of tool manufacture and related patterns of lithic technology, through the issues of subsistence and settlement patterns, to the more controversial evidence for social organization, cognition, and intelligence. Mellars argues that previous attempts to characterize Neanderthal behavior as either "modern" or "ape-like" are both overstatements. We can better comprehend the replacement of Neanderthals, he maintains, by concentrating on the social and demographic structure of Neanderthal populations and on their specific adaptations to the harsh ecological conditions of the last glaciation. Mellars's approach to these issues is grounded firmly in his archaeological evidence. He illustrates the implications of these findings by drawing from the methods of comparative socioecology, primate studies, and Pleistocene paleoecology. The book provides a detailed review of the climatic and environmental background to Neanderthal occupation in Europe, and of the currently topical issues of the behavioral and biological transition from Neanderthal to fully "modern" populations.

Book Description :

This beautifully illustrated, elegant synthesis of current research and interpretation of European and North American landscape use is the most comprehensive volume available in the field. Much more than an up-to-date overview, the book offers a treatment of cultural, social, political, technological, and philosophical issues as they influence landscape history, including an examination of the environmental impact of human activity. In addition, it closely traces the development of the discipline and profession of landscape architecture. Drawn from the latest literature and documentation, it also reflects the authors many years of field observation and analysis. The authors begin by taking you through European and neighboring landscapes, including the Near East and North Africa. They track the development of human activity through early settlement, agriculturalization, industrialization, and the modern period. Next you'll explore North American land use and landscape architecture history, beginning with the influence of Native American cultures. Particular attention is paid to the impact of Euro-American attitudes and practices upon a landscape with limited human alterations to natural systems. You'll also learn about the emergence of the profession of landscape architecture from related disciplines in the mid-nineteenth century. Significant cultural influences, social trends, individuals, sites, and landscape regions in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico are all fully treated. Throughout, the book emphasizes the multicultural experience of landscape. It also brings you a more thorough discussion of the American landscape than any other work of its kind. Other up-to-the-minute topics includeecology, conservation, and environmental impact; a geographic context for design and planning; the relationship of values to land use; pre-Columbian landscape, design and planning; historic preservation; and environmental art. In addition, the book examines the role of six key issues in human interaction with the environment; the relationship of people to the natural environment; the effect of technology; human values concerning urban, rural, and natural landscapes; the symbolism of landscape; the social role of design and the role of aesthetics in land planning and design. Containing useful chapter summaries and bibliographies, this is the ideal introductory text for undergraduate and graduate students of landscape architecture and related studies. Landscape architects, architects, and planners should also read it in order to explore historical trends in social, cultural, and environmental contexts, and to better understand landscape architecture as a distinctive discipline.
