Holand America B. So many indian tribes totally eradicated. I read with interest the sections dealing with the crops that I have researched genetically— Amaranthus and Chenopodium —as well as several other crops that I am very familiar with, such as cotton. The term was first used in by American historian Alfred W.
Product Attributes. This very interesting book is essentially about evidence of pre-Columbian contact across the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. The authors find evidence in the distribution of flora and fauna found on opposite sides of the ocean. The assumption is that there had to have been a vector which caused this distribution because natural causes do not seem to be a totally satisfactory answer. The obvious question right now would be what possible connection can that have with anything we are interested in on RockArtBlog?
Well, in the study of rock art we still have to deal with the epigraphy question. Were some rock art symbols or inscriptions created by visitors from across the sea?
Any information about trans-oceanic contact prehistorically potentially has bearing on this subject. Posted by Peter Faris at AM.

Perhaps because I am an anthropologist, these chapters seem to me weaker than the preceding ones on geologic and biological data.
McCarthy relies heavily on Jared Diamond in these chapters, accepting pp. Australian evolutionary biologist Tim Flannery, not cited by McCarthy, published a powerful analysis of the biogeographical history of Australia, showing how ocean currents produce unpredictable weather likely to doom any extensive agriculture there and admiring the intelligent adaptations created by the pre-European human immigrants to that continent Flannery This is indeed a good example of biogeography illuminating history.
World Trade and Biological Exchanges Before 1492
Reported in the prestigious Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences , the research should finally put down the head-in-the-sand refusal of most archaeologists to look at the abundant and, in many cases, soundly supported data on pre-Columbian transoceanic contacts with the Americas Sorenson and Johannessen The great pioneer geographer and ecologist Carl O. Sauer — taught his Berkeley students that biogeography was the key to scientific data on human histories.
Biology teachers will find in it a wealth of lively examples and clearly developed explanations for geographical and paleontological data; McCarthy documents his sources and provides a limited but useful bibliography. Skip to main content. Advertisement Hide.
