Abstract: For second and third year undergraduates. Examines global environmental fluctuations of last 2 million years, analyses important evidence used in reconstructing Quaternary environments and considers ways in which living organisms (including humans) have responded to past environmental changes. Sections include Quaternary environments: an introduciton; Prelude to the Quaternary; Quaternary glaciations: extent and chronology; Quaternary glaciations: causes and feedback mechanisms; Milankovitch hypothesis and Quaternary environments; Quaternary sea-level changes; Evidence from oceans; Rivers, lakes and groundwater; Evidence from deserts; Evidence from terrestrial flora and fauna; Human origins, innovations and migrations; Atmospherice circulation during Quaternary; Environmental changes: past, present and future; together with Appendix: Dating methods in Quaternary research, and extensive reference list.
