Climate change and human responses : a zooarchaeological perspective by Gregory G Monks( )

11 editions published in 2017 in 3 languages and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book contributes to the current discussion on climate change by presenting selected studies on the ways in which past human groups responded to climatic and environmental change. In particular, the chapters show how these responses are seen in the animal remains that people left behind in their occupation sites. Many of these bones represent food remains, so the environments in which these animals lived can be identified and human use of those environments can be understood. In the case of climatic change resulting in environmental change, these animal remains can indicate that a change has occurred, in climate, environment and human adaptation, and can also indicate the specific details of those changes
The exploitation and cultural importance of sea mammals by International Council for Archaeozoology( Book )

9 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Humans are known to exploit plant and animal resources for a variety of purposes. Subsistence is the most obvious of these, but there are also social and technological reasons behind such activities, not to mention ideological and spiritual motives for exploitation. In order to maximise exploitation of resources, human often exploit ecotones, where several ecological zones exist in close proximity. The seashore is such an ecotone, and sea mammals are just one of many groups of resources who are available here. This volume looks to address some of the vast array of coastal adaptations that have occurred during the human past and the role that sea mammals have played in them
