By O. Frank Huffman

Abstract

Judging from the Plio-Pleistocene lithofacies and biofacies present in the hominid-bearing formations of eastern Java (and other geological data), the homeland of Homo erectus, like modern Java, was a volcanic archipelago that contained mountains, seacoasts, and various intermediate geographic settings. Using the modern ecology of the region as a guide, the diverse paleophysiography of the Plio-Pleistocene is seen to reflect a wide range of resources and ecosystems on which early hominids could have relied
