About this book

Presents a novel approach in the field of global change by presenting a comprehensive analysis of interhemispheric linkages of climate, present and past, and their effects on human societies.

...an effort has clearly been made to produce an integrated volume. It is thus not just a collection of independent papers, but a homogenous whole. I really enjoyed reading the book...geographically, it covers the entire Americas and keeps the promise of its title: to present and discuss Interhemispheric Climate Linkages. --Marit-Solveig Seidenkrantz, Univ. of Aarhus, Denmark, for BOREAS: AN INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF QUATERNARY RESEARCH "An outstanding collection of current research on the paleoclimatology of the Americas by leaders in the field. This is an essential volume for those concerned with past environmental change in North, Central, and South America." --Ray Bradley, Director, Climate System Research Center, University of Massachusetts "...a comprehensive review of late-Quaternary palaeclimate changes in the Americas and contains references to virtually all the important studies. This book should form one of the cornerstones of palaeclimate science and direct future research in sensitive areas. It is highly recommended for all palaeo-scientists." --Holocene (2002; v12:377) Matthew Lachniet, Smithsonian Tropical Res. Inst., Panama
