The New Zealand Medical Student Journal
'Global Change in the Holocene,' can be highly recommended as essential reading for all those interested in the science of Holocene environmental change. The book provides a state-of-the-art, interdisciplinary guide to this research field, the hour of which has truly come.
This book is an excellent resume of these issues and will form an essential basis for future mountain research within a number of disciplines.
The Holocene 15
I consider this book an essential purchase for libraries of all institutions that profess any interest in the research or teaching of aspects of Holocene climate science.
Journal of Quarternary Science
All of the papers selected for the book are highly relevant and objective, thus providing the reader with the most recent views and results about the subject matter. References are of high scientific quality and up-to-date as at time of publication. Chapters are arranged in a logical order and ideas are presented in such a way that readers can make their own decision about the conclusions. In general, this book is the result of a well-organised effort to bring together high-quality articles meant to present the major global changes in the Holocene.
This extremely well illustrated book with 12 colour plates clearly describes in detail how the Holocene spans the 11 500 years since the end of the last Ice Age. This work clearly demonstrates how the record of environmental change during the Holocene can provide scientists with the vital information about how our environment operates. It presents the reader with an informed viewpoint from which to predict the future. For the student and the scholar in this important field of research, the reader will not be disappointed with this well written book of 29 learned essays.
The International Journal of Environmental Studies
This book will be an informative and cutting-edge resource for all researchers in the fields of climatic change, environmental science, geography, palaeoecology and archaeology.
The suite of expert authors is impressive and they have done a remarkable job in presenting their often sophisticated approaches clearly and succinctly. Even the experienced specialist may well find inspiration for new hypotheses to test.
