The local environmental impact of prehistoric populations on Saibai Island, Northern Torres Strait - enigmatic evidence from Holocene swamp lithostratigraphic records
The mid- to late-Holocene palaeoenvironmental history of a low island adjacent to the southern Papuan coast is reconstructed from sedimentary and pollen analysis of swamp stratigraphies, supported by conventional and AMS radiocarbon dating, in an effort to constrain dates for prehistoric horticultural activity.
