      The extent to which past climate change has dictated the pattern and timing of the out-of-Africa expansion by anatomically modern humans is currently unclear [Stewart JR, Stringer CB () Science –]. In particular, the incompleteness of the fossil record makes it difficult to quantify the effect of climate. Here, we take a different approach to this problem; rather than relying. New sites and new data from old sites are changing the understanding of the peopling of the Americas. For decades the consensus was that the first Americans were big-game hunters who traveled from Asia across the Bering Land Bridge near the end of the Ice Age, ab years ago. Named for an occupation site in Clovis, N.M., these earliest people, called Paleoindians, are known for their.

    Climate Change and Human Evolution. The evolutionary surge that led to Homo habilis began during the transition between the Pliocene and Pleistocene Epoch s around million years ago when climates were becoming cooler and drier. All later species of Homo evolved during the Pleistocene (2,, 1,7 00 years ago).This was generally a time of more extreme world cooling and recurrent.

Pleistocene Epoch - Pleistocene Epoch - Pleistocene fauna and flora: The plants and animals of the Pleistocene are, in many respects, similar to those living today, but important differences exist.

Moreover, the spatial distribution of various Pleistocene fauna and flora types differed markedly from what it is at present.

Changes in climate and environment caused large-scale migrations of both. Pleistocene Epoch, earlier and major of the two epochs that constitute the Quaternary Period of the Earth’s history, and the time period during which a succession of glacial and interglacial climatic cycles occurred.

Pleistocene Epoch - Pleistocene Epoch - Pleistocene events and environments: Environments during the Pleistocene were dynamic and underwent dramatic change in response to cycles of climatic change and the development of large ice sheets.

Essentially all regions of the Earth were influenced by these climatic events, but the magnitude and direction of environmental change varied from place to place. Top: Late-Pleistocene lake in the Western Siberian lowlands. Bottom: Reconstruction of drainage in central Eurasia in late Pleistocene.

The big Swedish and Finnish lakes were all created by the melting inland ice, as they were originally parts of both the Yoldia Sea and the fresh Ancylus Sea. Figure 3 shows an intercalibration of two sets of ice core isotopic measurements, one from Byrd Station in the Southern Hemisphere, and the other from Camp Century in the Northern Hemisphere.

A decrease of one part per million (ppm) in the del 18 O measurement is equivalent to a reduction in temperature of approximately o C at the time that the water evaporated from the oceans. The Pleistocene was not only a time during which climates and temperatures shifted dramatically; Pleistocene fossils are often abundant, well-preserved, and can be dated very precisely.

Some, such as diatoms, foraminifera, and plant pollen, are both abundant and highly informative about paleoclimates. All human skeletal remains from the Americas are anatomically modern Homo sapiens;thus, the peopling of the New World is best under-stood in the context of the evolution and dis-persal of modern humans in the Old World.

Modern human dispersal from Africa across Eurasia began by about 50 ka (4, 5)andcul-minated with colonization of the Americas. The _____ society was associated with the initial development of cultural unity and centralized authority in the northern Peruvian highlands and coast.

The term "Paleo-American" refers to human adaptation to, and exploitation of, Pleistocene environments and associated plants and animals.

This was an age of ice and snow. Great glacial ice sheets covered much of Canada and the northern portions of what is now the United States of America.Detailed records of δ 18 O, δ 13 C, percentage and mass accumulation rate of CaCO 3, and eolian percentage, mass accumulation rate, and grainsize generated for core RC from the equatorial Pacific reveal the timing of paleoclimatic events over the pastCaCO 3 percentage record shows the standard Pacific correlation of high CaCO 3 content with glacial periods, but displays.The ecological adaptations that stimulated the dispersal and technological strategies of our species during the Late Pleistocene remain hotly disputed, with some influential theories focusing on grassland biomes or marine resources as key drivers behind the rapid expansion and material culture innovations of Homo sapiens within and beyond Africa.
