Book excerpt: European Glacial Landscapes: The Role of Glaciers in Shaping the Landscape of Europe During the Last Glacial Cycle brings together relevant experts on the history of glaciers and their impact on the landscape of the main regions of Europe. The book examines the landscapes produced by glaciers throughout Europe, from the earliest recorded glaciations to the most impressive and most obvious legacy of the Last Glacial Cycle. In addition, the book examines the chronology and evolution of past glaciers, with an aim of helping readers understand the interrelationship between glacial expansion and climate changes on the continent. As glacial expansion and retreat occurred numerous times over the last million years, with cold periods interrupted by short warm periods, interglacials, with massive shrinkage of the glaciers, this book reviews all the known data on this interesting topic. Provides a synthesis that highlights the main similarities or differences, through both space and time, during the maximum recorded expansions of Pleistocene glaciers in Europe Features research from experts in glacial geomorphology, paleo-glaciology, paleo-climatology and paleo-oceanography on glacial expansion in Europe Includes access to a website with an interactive map, photos of glacial features, and geospatial data about the landscapes related to glacial expansions in Europe

Summary : The burning question, of course, is why a creature that originated in cozy tropical Africa would go live in a cold and dry place, especially at its coldest and driest, between 300,000 and 12,000 years ago. Alas, no pioneer journals survive, at least translated into a modern European language; and Hoffecker (U. ...
