Biophysical feedbacks between the Pleistocene megafauna extinction and climate: the first human-induced global warming / Christopher E. Doughty, Adam Wolf, Christopher B. Field.

Title: Biophysical feedbacks between the Pleistocene megafauna extinction and climate: the first human-induced global warming / Christopher E. Doughty, Adam Wolf, Christopher B. Field.

Publisher: Washington DC: American Geophysical Union
Abstract: Reports large increase in trees of genus Betula across Siberia and Beringia during 1000 year window coinciding with extinction of mammoths and arrival of humans about 13,800 years ago. Hypothesises that humans may have contributed to extinction of herbivores, with consequent increase in Betula cover, reduced land surface albedo and regional rise in temperature. Thus human impact on global climate may predate origin of agriculture.
