Reviews

@from: M. Bush @qu:...I find this volume immensely useful as it is a compendium of so many useful datasets from a leader in the field. @source:Geoarchaeology @from: W.D. Gosling @qu:...Illustrated with beautiful and informative photographs throughout. ...would be of interest to anyone working on environmental change in South America, especially those who are new to the field, owing to the wealth of background information and the completeness of the reconstruction presented. @source:Journal of Quaternary Science @from: S. Harrison @qu: ...Heusser has provided a wonderful synthesis of a vast body of research and this is required reading for anyone researching the Quaternary history of this remote region. @source: Holocene, 2005
