  Holocene
Holocene marine fossils are known from Vermont, Quebec, Ontario, and Michigan.
Holocene marine deposits along coastlines are rare because the rise in sea levels during the period exceeds any likely upthrusting of non-glacial origin.
It is possible that the Holocene warming is merely another interglacial period and does not represent a permanent end to the Pleistocene glaciation.

 Holocene - Wikipedia Light!   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-09)
The beginning of the Holocene was punctuated by the Younger Dryas cold period, the final part of the Pleistocene epoch.
The Holocene is the fourth and last epoch of the Neogene period (second epoch of the unofficial Quaternary sub-era).
The beginning of the Holocene corresponds with the beginning of the Mesolithic age in most of Europe; but in regions such as the Middle East and Anatolia with a very early neolithisation, Epipaleolithic is preferred in place of Mesolithic.

 Holocene epoch - HighBeam Encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-09)
Holocene epoch or Recent epoch, most recent of all subdivisions of geologic time, ranging from the present back to the time (c.11,000 years ago) of almost complete withdrawal of the glaciers of the preceding Pleistocene epoch.
During the Holocene epoch, the sculpturing of the earth's surface to its present form was completed.
Withdrawal of the glacial ice resulted in the development of the present-day drainage basins of the Missouri and Ohio rivers, the development of the Great Lakes, and a global rise in sea level of up to 100 ft (30 m) as the glacial meltwater was returned to the seas.

Seaward of the barriers is a narrow continental shelf that reaches approximately 45 km in width with the shelf edge occurring at approximately 200 m.
Holocene sediment thickness for the parts of the shelf that were not surveyed by Cross and others (1998; 1999) were digitized and merged with the more detailed middle and inner shelf seismic data set.
The Holocene section of the barriers and beaches was derived from boreholes and water well results that were studied by a large group of researchers referred to as the "Beach Group" in Figure 2.

 Climate Change 2001: The Scientific Basis
Holocene lake level changes in Europe have been shown to correlate (Magny, 1995; Yu and Harrisson, 1996) with millennial-scale changes in North Atlantic SST and salinity records (Duplessy et al., 1992; Gasse and van Campo, 1994), suggesting a possible link between millennial thermohaline circulation variability and atmospheric circulation over Europe.
The early Holocene was generally warmer than the 20th century but the period of maximum warmth depends on the region considered.
Interestingly, the Holocene appears by far the longest warm “stable” period (as far as seen from the Antarctic climate record) over the last 400 ky, with profound implications for the development of civilisation (Petit et al., 1999).

 The Holocene   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-09)
Another name for the Holocene that is sometimes used is the Anthropogene, the "Age of Man." This is somewhat misleading: humans of our own subspecies, Homo sapiens sapiens, had evolved and dispersed all over the world well before the start of the Holocene.
Humanity has greatly influenced the Holocene environment; while all organisms influence their environments to some degree, few have ever changed the globe as much, or as fast, as our species is doing.
Yet the Holocene has also seen the great development of human knowledge and technology, which can be used -- and are being used -- to understand the changes that we see, to predict their effects, and to stop or ameliorate the damage they may do to the Earth and to us.

 CRU Information Sheet no. 6: The Holocene
The Holocene is a relatively warm period, probably an interglacial between ice ages.
The early Holocene extends from around 11 500 BP up to 5 000 BP, and was a period in which the climate became warmer and wetter.
In the early Holocene, there were at least three occasions when the climate deteriorated abruptly, as shown by rapid falls in many African lake levels, in 12 000, 8 200 and 5 200 BP.

 Holocene extinction event - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Holocene extinction event is a name customarily given to the widespread, ongoing mass extinction of species during the modern Holocene epoch.
In broad usage, the Holocene extinction event includes the notable disappearance of large mammals, known as megafauna, by the end of the last ice age 9,000 to 13,000 years ago.
Overall, the Holocene extinction event is most significantly characterised by the presence of man-made driving factors and its very short geological timescale (tens to thousands of years) compared to most other extinction events.

The thermal response to the early Holocene precession-driven summer insolation maximum was concentrated in northwest North America where the HTM is apparent 12 - 9 ka (thousands of calendar years ago), while cool conditions persisted in the northeast with the HTM not apparent in Quebec and Labrador until the mid to late Holocene.
Widespread fire activity in southern South America in the early Holocene is consistent with recent model simulations that suggest warmer SSTs, a weakened pole-to-equator temperature gradient, and a southward shift of westerly storm tracks as a result of the strong obliquity forcing (Liu et al., Paleoceanography 18, 2003).

Yet, in that short time, the "Holocene" has joined the Cambrian-Ordovician, the Ordovician-Silurian, the Late Devonian, the Permian-Triassic, and the Cretaceous-Paleogene for the dubious distinction of contributing its name to a mass extinction event.
Until recently, the term "Holocene Extinction" referred to a rather minor spate of extinction which took place at the beginning of the Holocene, with the end of the megafauna--woolly mammoths, North American horses, sabertooth cats, and other large mammals.
