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.
