Human ecology is ultimately part of a general theory of society. This is the argument developed here by Roy Ellen, whose exploration of the interplay between social organization and ecology in small-scale subsistence systems has direct bearings both on the investigation of human environmental relations in general and on contemporary social theory.

The Holocene provides students, researchers and lay-readers with the remarkable story of how the natural world has been transformed since the end of the last Ice Age aro years ago.

This period has witnessed a shift from environmental changes determined by natural forces to those dominated by human actions, including those of climate and greenhouse by: Further, it analyses human intervention since the middle Holocene as a major agent of environmental change.

Offering a valuable tool for understanding past climate change and its relationship with present climate change, the book is a must-read for botanists, ecologists, palaeontologists and graduate students in. As one of the major focuses of this study is to explore the dietary sources of the human diet during the mid-Holocene in northeastern North America, we focus on sampling bone collagen, because collagen stable isotope values specifically reflect the protein component of the consumer's diet (Ambrose and Norr, ; Tieszen and Fagre, ).

This research examines the ecology of human diet using archaeological evidence from a specific site in western North America, North Creek Shelter (NCS) near Escalante, Utah.I use ecological measures and theory to quantify human dietary change during the early to middle Holocene and in the context of local ecosystems that supplied plant and animal food resources.
