This chapter uses fossil dental remains of marmots (genus Marmota) to examine the effects of climate changes on populations of a taxon whose modern ecology, demography, physiology, and systematics have been extensively studied. It examines whether the shifts in climate—a probable transition from a relatively moist interglacial to a cool–dry glacial to a very warm–dry interglacial—were of sufficient magnitude to cause detectable change in marmot populations.

Keywords:   marmots, Marmota, climate changes, populations, ecology, demography, physiology, systematics, interglacial, glacial
