... argued that prehistoric cultural changes on the Colorado Plateau occurred
contemporaneously with environmental changes. The most important line of
evidence is the tree-ring chronologies prepared by the Southwest Paleoclimate
Project of the Laboratory of Tree-Ring Research. Variations in the annual growth
rings of trees from archaeological contexts are datable in comparison with
chronologies of tree-rings prepared from living trees. This chronologically
sensitive variation is a ...

this would suggest that the completely environmental explanation of the
prehistoric abandonment of Black Mesa offered by Gumerman and Euler (l976) is
not valid.. The above discussion has indicated that information on procurement
systems is important in testing previously formulated explanations of culture

geomorphology, palynology, and dendroclimatology, permits the accurate
quantitative reconstruction of annual fluctuations in potential agricultural
production (kg maize/hectare). The archaeological record of Anasazi farming
groups from A.D. 200 to 1300 provides information on a millennium of
sociocultural stasis, variability, change, ...
