"We are pleased to invite you to contribute to a Special Issue in the journal Quaternary that aims to decipher the adaptive capacity of prehistoric coastal communities to the effect of the sea-level change and related phenomena.


Past socio-ecological adaptation to sea-level rise has emerged as a key field of study to investigate the sensitivity of human systems to global climate changes. Indeed, following the last glaciation, the melting of ice sheets induced a rapid sea-level rise, drastically modifying the configuration of coastal areas. The consequences of this sea-level rise not only consisted of changes in the territory occupied by prehistoric communities, but also induced changes in the availability of environmental resources, which could have had threatened the adaptive capacity of coastal human communities. By gathering case studies on this topic, this Special Issue aims to improve our understanding of the modality and rhythm of socio-ecological responses to sea-level rise, which is of major importance in the current context of global environmental changes.


We thus encourage the submission of original manuscripts that contribute to better understanding past human–environment feedbacks in coastal areas.
