Title: Environmental change in Iceland: Past and present glaciology and quaternary geology, volume 7

Environmental Change in Iceland not only challenges traditional interpretations of the glacial and post-glacial environmental history of Iceland, it offers exciting and coherent alternatives to the established viewpoint. The collection's good organizational quality ensures its use as a solid introduction to current knowledge and research in the late Quaternary glacial and archaeological history of Iceland. Several gaps exist, however, which the editors could have avoided by providing more data on vegetation history. The lack of pollen data is acknowledged by the editors, but some utilization of an ecosystem perspective would have enhanced the interdisciplinary nature of the volume.
