Early human impact on vegetated landscapes in southern China
Already 6.000 years ago humans intervened in nature in such a way that the vegetation changed. This is the result of a study by Dr. Mahyar Mohtadi from MARUM – Center for Marine Environmental Sciences at the University of Bremen and his colleagues. The basis is the comparison of several past warm periods. The journal Nature Geoscience has now published the study.
