...Ice Age Trees and Climate Change Summary Ice Age has left many important marks on the ecology and geology of Earth. Events that happened during the Ice Age have played a decisive role in making the planet the way it is today. It has been a common perception for a long time in the history that mass hunting of big animals by humans caused many of their species to become extinct since the end of the Ice Age. Findings of the recent research suggest that there have been other factors in addition to mass hunting of big animals by humans, that have played a role in the extinction of many species of big animals. Big animals were already seeing a decline as a result of loss of food and vegetation... Decline of...

...ICE AGE Between 1150 and 1460 Western Europe experienced a general cooling of the climate. The term Little Ice Age was originally dubbed byF Matthes in 1939 to depict the climatic intervals that range in the span of 4000 years. Soon, this term solely described the widespread current period of mountain glacier expansion and is predictably defined as the 16th to mid 19th century period during which European climate was most strongly affected. It turned extremely cold between 1560 and 1850 that brought dismal repercussions to the people of Europe. It caused devastating effects in agriculture, health, economics, even arts and literature, which caused social strife and emigration. Due to the very...
