GC039:
Human-Environmental Interactions: Past, Present and Future





Session ID#: 25988

Session Description:
Human-environment interaction is an important issue in the entire human evolution history. Climate and environment change have greatly impacted and shaped human biological evolution, spatial distributions, technological innovations and societal developments in the past, while human activities started to considerably affect climate and environment changes at least three to five thousand years ago. However, because of the complexity of human-environment interactions, we still know little about how prehistoric human adapted to rapid and large-extent climate changes, how civilized societies responded to abrupt climate and environment changes in the Holocene, and how humans influenced past, present and future climate and environmental changes. This session aims to explore the trajectory of climate change and human-environment interaction since the late Pleistocene and to understand the patterns, mechanisms and evolution of human-environment relationships. We welcome presentations concerning these issues from multi-disciplinary perspectives, to promote the advancements of research in the field.
