Summary/Abstract: The purpose of this publication is to make the Russian-speaking readers familiar with the collection of articles called «The Holocene History of the European Vertebrate Fauna – Modern Aspects of Research» (Leidorf, 1999), representing a large spectrum of scientific studies in Palaeo- and Archaeozoology. This article brings a brief summary of the book’s contents with attention focused on basic problems, new methods and examples of how the data of the allied disciplines (Archaeology, Archaeobotany, Physics, Genetics, History and Art Sciences) can be used. The collection includes five sections: Faunal Changes at the Pleistocene/Holocene Transition; Formation and Evolution of the Holocene Fauna in Different Regions of Europe; Methodological Problems; Single species/Species groups; Natural and Anthropogenic Factors in the Evolution of the Vertebrate Fauna of Europe. This complex research enables conclusions about the general problems of modern Archaeozoology. The issues of domestication and artificial introduction of animals are still the most complicated and little known ones; these and many other issues of Holocene history of fauna are generated by methodological problems, particularly, the problems of species differentiation of bone remains.
