Europe has changed greatly in terms of climate and environment in the past twenty million years. Once there were subtropical forests, but by the end of the Miocene, five million years ago, these had all gone. This unique book provides evidence for the past climatic history of Europe and the Mediterranean in relation to hominoid evolution. Many different lines of evidence are brought together including studies specifically on past climates and the application of climate modeling, the reconstruction of past geographical events, and the effects they had on European environments and the plants and animals living in them. Together these form a coherent and consistent image of environmental and climatic change in Europe from 18 to 1.6 million years ago, for all those interested in mammalian and human evolution.

Europe's climate, fauna and flora have changed greatly over the past 20 million years, during which time our ancestors evolved. In this unique book, leading researchers from throughout Europe and wider afield provide evidence for Europe's past climatic history in relation to human evolution, drawing together many strands of evidence from geology, palaeontology and biology to form a coherent image of environmental and climatic change between 18 and 1.6 million years ago.Review:
"This book will be a major baseline reference both for the methodology of paleoenvironmental reconstruction and for its summary of the later Miocene of Europe. Highly recommended." Choice
"This fine volume lays out much of the basic data needed for the next phase of study." Historical Biology
