LATE‐QUATERNARY VEGETATION DYNAMICS IN NORTH AMERICA: SCALING FROM TAXA TO BIOMES
This paper integrates recent efforts to map the distribution of biomes for the late Quaternary with the detailed evidence that plant species have responded individual- istically to climate change atExpand

Pollen-based continental climate reconstructions at 6 and 21 ka: a global synthesis
Subfossil pollen and plant macrofossil data derived from 14C-dated sediment profiles can provide quantitative information on glacial and interglacial climates. The data allow climate variablesExpand

Parallel climate and vegetation responses to the early Holocene collapse of the Laurentide Ice Sheet
Parallel changes in lake-level and pollen data show that the rapid decline of the Laurentide Ice Sheet (LIS) between 10,000 and 8000 cal yr BP triggered a step-like change in North American climates:Expand

Modern pollen data from North America and Greenland for multi-scale paleoenvironmental applications
The modern pollen network in North America and Greenland is presented as a database for use in quantitative calibration studies and paleoenvironmental reconstructions. The georeferenced databaseExpand

The anatomy of a climatic oscillation: vegetation change in eastern North America during the Younger Dryas chronozone
Century-scale climate changes reshaped circulation patterns over the North Atlantic and adjacent regions during the last glacialto-interglacial transition. Here, we show that vegetation acrossExpand

DISSIMILARITY ANALYSES OF LATE-QUATERNARY VEGETATION AND CLIMATE IN EASTERN NORTH AMERICA
Plant formations different from any extant today apparently were widespread in North America and Europe during the last deglaciation, produced by the independent biogeographic responses of plant taxaExpand

Late Quaternary Water-Level Variations and Vegetation History at Crooked Pond, Southeastern Massachusetts
Abstract Sediment cores collected along a transect in Crooked Pond, southeastern Massachusetts, provide evidence of water-level changes between 15,000 cal yr B.P. and present. The extent ofExpand

Changes in fire regimes since the Last Glacial Maximum: an assessment based on a global synthesis and analysis of charcoal data
Fire activity has varied globally and continuously since the last glacial maximum (LGM) in response to long-term changes in global climate and shorter-term regional changes in climate, vegetation,Expand

Hydrogen isotope ratios of individual lipids in lake sediments as novel tracers of climatic and environmental change: a surface sediment test
We determined hydrogen isotope ratios of modern lake-waters and individual lipids from surface sediments of 36 lakes in the eastern North America. The lakes selected lie on two transects (south–northExpand

14,000 Years of Sediment, Vegetation, and Water-Level Changes at the Makepeace Cedar Swamp, Southeastern Massachusetts
Abstract Data from a transect of four cores collected in the Makepeace Cedar Swamp, near Carver, Massachusetts, record past changes in deposition, vegetation, and water level. Time series ofExpand
