Most of the megafauna that existed in the late Pleistocene, died. t is assumed that the extinction caused new diseases or primitive hunters, or it was a result of climate change or a combination of all factors.

These largely interglacial deposits are famous for their rich flora and fauna 8. However, despite a long history of investigation, the CF-bF has only recently yielded evidence for human presence 6. In the Late Bronze Age cremations replaced inhumations, a change attributed to a culture known as.

Investigations at two sites on the island of Jersey, and at nine localities on the Cotentin Peninsula have led to the reconstruction of apparent late interglacial and early glacial by: 4. The past and present chorology and habitats of the Hymenostylium are discussed in detail, as is the ethnobotany of the Sphagnum concerning both the Iceman and Kwäday Dän Ts’ìnchí, the first ancient glacier body from North America.

The Late Pleistocene is an unofficial sub-epoch in the international geologic timescale in chronostratigraphy, also known as Upper Pleistocene from a stratigraphic perspective.

It is intended to be the third division of the Pleistocene Epoch within the ongoing Quaternary Period. It is currently estimated to span the time between c. and c. 11, years ago. An oxbow lake is formed when a river creates a meander, due to the river's eroding the bank through hydraulic action and abrasion/corrosion.

After a long period of time, the meander becomes much curved, and eventually the neck of the meander will touch the opposite side and the river will cut through the neck, cutting off the meander to form the oxbow lake.

The Pleistocene (/ˈplaɪstəˌsiːn, -toʊ-/, often colloquially referred to as the Ice Age) is the geological epoch which lasted from about 2, to 11, years ago, spanning the world's most recent period of repeated glaciations.

Introduction. In Western Europe, Early and Middle Pleistocene sites that have produced human fossils generally reflect an earlier settlement of the Mediterranean region compared to northern Europe –, despite the number of both recent and previous finds (Figure 1) coming from Germany – or England.Moreover, human fossils from the loessic plains or valleys of northern France Cited by: Coastal deposits along the western coastal margin of Australia, a region of relative tectonic stability, record Plio-Pleistocene events and processes affecting the inner shelf and adjacent hinterland.
