We will convene a workshop of American, Canadian, and Russian scientists in September, 1997. The focus of the workshop will be paleoenvironments of Beringia. This will be an interdisciplinary meeting involving geologists, paleontologists (including paleobotanists, paleoentomologists, and vertebrate paleontologists), archaeologists, paleoceanographers, climate modelers, and modern biologists. The purposes of the workshop are twofold: 1) to examine and synthesize the current state of knowledge in the above-mentioned fields concerning Beringia with the aim of preparing a new volume on Beringian paleoenvironments, and 2), to establish an agenda for future Beringian research, focusing on the suitability of new techniques to answer ongoing research questions and pinpointing potentially important aspects of research that have previously been lacking or under represented in Beringian study regions
