Providing an important contribution to the current debate on the possibilities of human occupation of tropical rainforest before the advent of agriculture, this reference explores human hunting patterns of the Djief forest wallaby from the late Pleistocene. It provides intriguing insights into hunter-gatherer subsistence, tool manufacturing and use, the changing intensity of occupation of the sites, and environmental exploitation in a lowland tropical region. Aimed at researchers, this work gives a detailed account of cultural and biological remains excavated from two prehistoric sites, and highlights a number of innovative practices and new interpretations which will inform future quaternary research.
