Periodo de realización: 1900/01/01 al 2019/01/01
Lugar(es) de estudio: México
Resumen: "Analyzing the Holocene environmental history of Mexico and Mesoamerica is a complex task. It has been researched and explored by numerous scientists with the application of multidisciplinary methodologies and proxies over the last several decades. The idea of this book was developed some years ago with the principal objective of putting together most of the information on environmental changes occurred over the Holocene in this important part of the world with diverse ecosys- tems. We consider that this book with synthesis of the Holocene environmental histories is of wide interest to scientists, students, and the general public as it cov- ers the geographical diversity of this region and incorporates different approaches to understand environmental and climate changes. The ample geographical and thematic ranges made it unmanageable to cover all the aspects of environmental and climate changes. The chapters in this book, however, provide the readers with an overview of research realized in Mexico to foster new research collaborations in the fields of paleoclimate and climate change in the near future.
The editors of this book thank all the authors for their cooperation and positive spirit. To Springer, we are thankful for this opportunity and patience (thanks to Joao Pildervasser and colleagues!). We also acknowledge the reviewers for their valuable time, dedication, and important contributions: Dr. Hermann Behling (University of Goettingen), Dr. Henry Hooghiemstra (University of Amsterdam), Dr. Kees Nooren (University of Utrecht), and Dr. Josué Polanco-Martínez (Basque Centre for Climate Change)."
