Warmwater species increasingly spread north and east, thus blurring the formerly stable boundaries between different faunal regions.
Among the topics are inferring processes of Neolithic gene-culture co-evolution using genetic and archaeological data: the case of lactase persistence and dairying, evaluating the appearance and spread of domestic caprines in the southern Levant, early stock-keeping in Greece, the origin of stock-keeping and spread of animal exploitation strategies in the Early and Middle Neolithic of the North European Plain, and zoological data from Late Mesolithic and Neolithic sites in Switzerland about 6000-3500 BC, and earlier Neolithic subsistence in Britain and Ireland as seen through faunal remains and stable isotopes.

53% of above-ground biomass as a result of logging but despite this high level of degradation, logged forest retained considerable conservation value: floral species richness was higher in logged forest than in primary forest and while faunal species richness was typically lower in logged forest, in most cases the difference between habitats was no greater than ca.

Fatka and Mergl provide an overview of the complex evolution of terrane terminology, and argue, largely on the basis of faunal evidence, for the existence of Perunica as a microcontinent that is separate from the Armorican Terrane Assemblage throughout the Ordovician.
Though faunal assemblages provide some indication of diet breadth they provide little insight as to resource potentials and thereby little means to assess whether an apparent shift in prey choice reflects resource depression or a decline in NISPs associated with data recovery.
