Research into the Quaternary period (the latest one million years of the earth's history) involves the study of dramatic changes in climate, flora, fauna, landforms, and cultural evolution. This book represents a synthesis of the most recent and significant research in the combined fields of archaeology, glacial geology, paleoecology, paleolimnology, geography, and climate change.

In sum, this small volume is quite readable and a welcome addition to the paleoecology shelf. Several chapters include valuable and interesting bibliographies. It is a worthy tribute to Professor Wright who has contributed so much to the advancement of Quaternary studies.
