Abstract

Global human populations have increased exponentially over the last 10,000 years, associated with a large number of postglacial species and population extinctions across Europe, Asia and the Americas. The aim of this project is to integrate data on present‐day population trends (the Living Planet Index) with substantial zooarchaeological and historical datasets, to overcome past “extinction filter” effects associated with past extinctions, and fully understand the impact of human population density on wildlife abundance and distribution. We aim to use these methods to forecast and hindcast maps of modern, historical and future refugia, and identify those environmental conditions and human environments where human‐wildlife co‐existence is possible.
