About the conference

The Rapid Landscape Change Conference was held June 15-17, 2005, in Whitehorse, Yukon. The 3-day meeting reviewed current research on the effects of climate and landscape change in the North throughout the Holocene, and on the chronology and nature of past environmental events. It sought insights from past landscape changes and the way ancient peoples responded that might be useful for today's changing environments.
