This chapter summarizes the environmental and ecological history of the Arctic Foothills in Northern Alaska. It characterizes the responses of terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems to climatic changes of the past ~30,000 years. It highlights pollen records of changing vegetation composition which are abundant in the arctic foothills in studying responses to climate change. It describes the paleo-environmental environment across four periods: Glacial Interval (~27,000–15,000 yr BP), Late Glacial (~15,000–11,500 yr BP), Early Holocene (~11,500–7,500 yr BP), and Middle to Late Holocene (~7,500 yr BP to present).

Keywords:   ecological history, Arctic Foothills, Northern Alaska, terrestrial ecosystems, aquatic ecosystems, climate change, pollen record, Glacial Interval, Holocene
