Summary

A broadly interdisciplinary, international team investigated the complex web of cultural, ecological, geological, and climate systems in the Kuril Islands. The Kurils provide uniquely laboratory-like conditions for this study, permitting examination of past changes in local climates and ecosystems along an island chain. The islands are situated along a latitudinal gradient extending from temperate Hokkaido Island (north of Japan) to subarctic Kamchatka Peninsula of Russia. Evidence of human colonization, persistence and abandonment at various times in the past five millennia and under different social, economic, and technological regimes, was used to study vulnerability and resilience of humans to both catastrophic and gradual environmental changes. At the same time, researchers examined reciprocal effects humans have on relatively insular biota. Through the development and refinement of integrated human-environmental models and simulations, the research sought to quantify these relationships.
