A revised and updated edition of a classic book that defines the field of historical ecology

People and the Land through Time, first published in 1997, remains the only introduction to the field of historical ecology from the perspective of ecology and ecosystem processes. It has been widely praised for its emphasis on the integration of historical information into scientific analyses and cited for its usefulness to an interdisciplinary audience of students and professionals in such diverse fields as ecology, conservation, history, archaeology, geography, and anthropology.

This revised edition brings the research up to date and addresses current issues in historical ecology such as the proposed geological epoch, the Anthropocene, the roles of indigenous people in historic ecosystems; the impacts of past climatic fluctuations; and trends in sustainability and conservation. This fascinating exploration sheds light on the lingering consequences of human history on current ecosystems and landscapes, as well as the role that changing environments have played in human history.
