The contrasting biology of tropical versus temperate Nothofagus species and its relevance to interpretations of Cenozoic rainforest history in southeast Australia / Jennifer Read, Robert S. Hill, Geoffrey S. Hope and Raymond J. Carpenter -- 3. Beneath the peat: A refined pollen record from an interstadial at Caledonia Fen, highland eastern Victoria, Australia / A. Peter Kershaw, G. Merna McKenzie, Jonathan Brown, Richard G. Roberts and Sander van der Kaars -- 4. The vegetation cover of New Zealand during the Last Glacial Maximum: Do pollen records under-represent woody vegetation? / Matt S. McGlone, Rewi M. Newnham and Neville T. Moar -- 5. Holocene vegetation history of a high-elevation (1200 m) site in the Lake Heron Basin, inland Canterbury, New Zealand / J. M. Pugh and J. Shulmeister -- 6. Last Glacial Maximum habitat change and its effects on the grey-headed flying fox (Pteropus poliocephalus Temminck 1825) / J. G. Luly, David Blair, Jennifer G. Parsons, Samantha Fox and Jeremy VanDerWal -- 7. Observations on feeding frequencies among native and exotic birds and fruit bats at Erythrina variegata and Dysoxylum trees on American Samoa / Julie A. Sherman and Patricia L.

Marsupials as introduced species: Long-term anthropogenic expansion of the marsupial frontier and its implications for zoogeographic interpretation / Thomas E. Heinsohn -- 10. The empty coast: Conditions for human occupation in southeast Australia during the late Pleistocene / Sandra Bowdler -- 11. Early Holocene human occupation and environment of the Southeast Australian Alps: New evidence from the Yarrangobilly Plateau, New South Wales / Ken Aplin, Fred Ford and Peter Hiscock -- 12. Holocene lowland vegetation change and human ecology in Manus Province, Papua New Guinea / Matthew Prebble, Jean Kennedy and Wendy Southern -- 13. Geomorphic and archaeological consequences of human arrival and agricultural expansion on Pacific islands: A reconsideration after 30 years of debate / Matthew Spriggs -- 14. Pollen evidence for plant introductions in a Polynesian tropical island ecosystem, Kingdom of Tonga / Patricia L. Fall -- 15. Integrating social and environmental change in prehistory: A discussion of the role of landscape as a heuristic in defining prehistoric possibilities in northeast Thailand / William E. Boyd and Nigel Chang -- Fire and its role in transforming our environment. 16.
