C. the climate became even warmer and more humid than it is now; vegetation was more lush, and glaciers were no greater in extent than they are at present. New lakes formed from melting glaciers, and older lakes became fresher and deeper. Forests of pine and birch grew around many lakes, even in the Himalayas. The far north was still quite cold and not so moist as the south and east, which were more humid and more heavily forested than today.

The modem environment is the result of many millions of years of climatic changes and innumerable adaptations and migrations of ancient animals and plants.
