Examining pan-neotropical diasporas

Project description

Climate change influences human migration

Many human expansions have been linked to climate change. Ancient ecological records suggest that climate change may have influenced tropical farmers' diaspora. As a result, the areas where polyculture agroforestry was practiced, expanded. The EU-funded EXPAND project uses Iowland South America as an interesting case study that integrates continent-wide archaeological and palaeoecological datasets via computer modelling architecture to test the role of environmental drivers in the late Holocene period. The project findings will help bring lowland South America to the forefront of the debate on climate change and human population dynamics.
