The currently 2681 entries provide a chronological framework not only for the dispersal of farming from Anatolia into Europe but also for the major transformations occurring during the Chalcolithic in these areas.

The data is available to the general public via a web application containing a comprehensive query system, which allows the analysis and evaluation of the data for complex ecological questions of soil-zoological research and monitoring.

Email: IRPA/KIK: Royal Institute for Cultural Heritage Web-Based Radiocarbon Database (site under construction) The database contains thousands of radiocarbon and and stable isotope results, and new data is introduced at regular intervals, with an embargo of at least 2 yrs maintained between the delivery of the report to the submitterand the introduction of the results in the database.

Database developers and maintainers Edaphobase: is a taxonomic-ecological database system, which combines existing taxonomical primary data on soil organisms from collections, scientific literature and reports etc.New isotopic analyses of bones, soils and plant remains from Rapa Nui, Chile (Easter Island) provide evidence contrary to the widely-held belief that the ancient civilization recklessly destroyed its environment.It had been proposed that vast forests of giant palm trees were cut down by the people of Rapa Nui leaving them among other things without canoes. (2012) Aust Arch 2: A database of 14C and luminescence ages from archaeological sites in the Top End. Based on the hypothesis that an increase in the consumption of meat correlates with lower population densities and perhaps higher mobility, we are interested in isotopic measurements of human and animal bones. One of the main questions concerns the reconstruction of diet and mobility of humans and animals.Contrary to notions of 'ecocide', the new results suggest that the ancient population adapted to the harsh environmental conditions by managing their gardens and manipulating soils for better crops.
This means that they exhibited astute environmental awareness and stewardship to overcome nutrient poor soils.
The ecocide hypothesis, though controversial, is commonly used as the archetypal parable of the dangers of environmental destruction. In addition to offering specialized courses, the ITCE funded Catrine Jarman's Research-in-Residence at the University of Hawai‘i allowing her to gain access to new ideas, skills and data through collaborative work with Popp, an ITCE course faculty member.
Understanding how past populations managed their limited resources for subsistence purposes is crucial to this debate, but empirical evidence of their diets is sparse. Funding was also obtained through a research grant to Jarman from the Kon-Tiki Museum.
This integrative approach is based on the analysis of chronological, spatial, geoarchaeological, archaeobiological and cultural data.

Andrew Martindale, Associate Professor at the University of British Columbia Department of Anthropology and Peter Wall Institute for Advanced Studies Director of the UBC Laboratory of Archaeology and CARD Email: [email protected] 806 - D4: Chronology, site concentrations, cultural differentiation, and mobility patterns as basis for comparing human environment interaction Project D4 of the CRC 806 focuses on the question, as to whether the presence, or resp., the absence of humans can be interpreted as a response to natural or cultural environment by integrating data, methods and results from various former CRC-projects and from literature.
Catrine Jarman concluded: "This research highlights the unique and varied environmental adaptations that Pacific Islanders have shown through time.
