Humans first occupied Beringia during a twilight period when rising sea levels had not yet caught up with warming climates.

    Quaternary Palaeoecology, first published in , discusses the methods and approaches by which Quaternary environments can be reconstructed from the fossil and sedimentary record. This knowledge is of great value as the Quaternary was a time of rapid ecological change, culminating in the Price: $ The Bering Strait, the Chukchi Sea to the north and the Bering Sea to the south, are all shallow seas (maps, right).During cycles of global cooling, such as the most recent ice age, much water became concentrated in the ice caps of the Arctic and drop in sea levels exposed shallow sea floors that have subsequently re-flooded. Other land bridges around the world have been created.

Much of Beringia was composed of graminoid (grass and sedge) dominated habitats during the Late-Pleistocene, yet the account of the actual gramioids that were present is relatively vague.

The spatial and temporal variabilities of palaeoclimate, mega-fauna, archaeology, and vegetation interactions could be significantly enhanced with accounts of Beringian graminoids.
