These hominins inhabited an ancient savannah landscape, using the resources provided by its meagre braided streams. During the research it became

INTRODUCTION Long-term historical events, such as postglacial recolonization from different glacial refuges, may influence genetic population structure, phenotypic divergence and reproductive isolation among species (Taberlet, 1998 ; Hewitt, 2000 ; Kitano et al., 2007 ). The Pleistocene

780,000-year-old wood of the Early/Middle Pleistocene, from excavations at Gesher Benot Ya'aqov in the Dead Sea Rift, was examined anatomically. Twenty-eight genera of trees, shrubs, and climbers have been botanically identified. The most common among them were Fraxinus, Quercus, Olea, Salix, Pistacia, and Ulmus. Most of the identified plants represent typical Mediterranean vegetation. Remnants of almost all the identified species are still found in the region today, in spite of the dramatic changes that took place in the Holocene through the intervention of man. One species, however, could not be identified with wood anatomical data of European, Middle Eastern, or North African species. It appears to be a species that is extinct in this region.

plethora of mtDNA-based biogeographical hypotheses available can now be tested and fine-tuned (e.g. Spinks et al., 2014; Dufresnes et al., 2020). MtDNA phylogeography has illuminated the impact of the Pleistocene Ice Age’s climate cycles on intraspecific biodiversity, with the overarching pattern in
