Abstract:

"This book treats former and recent landscape evolution and past environments of the African continent (e.g. climate change, vegetation dynamics and growing impact of humans on ecosystems) and will be of interest to all concerned with low latitudes ecosystem changes and their respective interpretation in the framework of natural climate and vegetation change evidenced by a variety of methods that allow us to read and learn from 'proxy data' archives. Archaeologists, Palynologists, Palaeobotanists, Geographers, Geologists and Geomorphologists will find this edition equally useful for their work"--
