Our Special Issue Mediterranean Holocene Climate, Environment and Human Societies is now published at the volume 136 of the Quaternary Science Reviews.

This special issue of QSR emerged as a result of a workshop at Costa Navarino and the Navarino Environmental Observatory (NEO), Greece in April 2014, addressing Mediterranean Holocene climate and human societies. The workshop was co-sponsored by PAGES, NEO, the MISTRALS/ PaleoMex program, the Labex OT-Med, the Bolin Centre for Climate Research at Stockholm University, and the Institute of Oceanography at the Hellenic Centre for Marine Research.
