      Beringia, also called Bering Land Bridge, any in a series of landforms that once existed periodically and in various configurations between northeastern Asia and northwestern North America and that were associated with periods of worldwide glaciation and subsequent lowering of sea levels. Such dryland regions began appearing between the two continents about 70 . Ice age Beringia was home to a diverse, and yet unique, mix of strange and familiar animals. During the cold glacial times, icons like the woolly mammoth, steppe bison and scimitar cat roamed the treeless plains alongside caribou, muskox and grizzly bears.

      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.

      collaborators and colleagues and dedicate the book to David M. Hopkins, whose decades of research on the topic earned him the reputation as the last giant of Beringia. Hopkins edited The Bering land bridge (Stanford University Press, Stanford, California) in and co-edited Paleoecology of Beringia in. The Beringia was a land bridge that once connected Siberia to the American Continent thousands of years ago. Through this landbridge, the early homo sapiens who were to be later called Paleoamericans, migrated from Asia, after the Great African Ap.

Twenty-five thousand years ago, sea level fell more than feet below its present position as a consequence of the growth of immense ice sheets in the Northern Hemisphere. A dry plain stretching 1, miles from the Arctic Ocean to the Aleutians became exposed between northeast Asia and Alaska, and across that plain, most likely, walked the first people of the New World.

The patterns of biogeography and the paleoecology of Arctic dinosaurs during the Cretaceous are similar to the large-scale patterns of the mosaic floral pattern, the patterns of faunal exchange of later Tertiary and Quaternary mammals, and their paleoecology observed in a more recent geologic definition of Beringia.
