Patterns and processes of Late Quaternary environmental change in a montane region of southwestern Europe
This paper examines the Late Quaternary (c. 20,300–<505 cal yr BP) environmental history of Siles, a lake situated at 1320 m in the Segura mountains of southern Spain, with the goal of establishingExpand
Expected trends and surprises in the Lateglacial and Holocene vegetation history of the Iberian Peninsula and Balearic Islands.
Abstract Recent, high-resolution palaeoecological records are changing the traditional picture of post-glacial vegetation succession in the Iberian Peninsula. In addition to the influence ofExpand
Holocene vegetation dynamics, fire and grazing in the Sierra de Gádor, southern Spain
This paper examines the mid to late-Holocene (c. 6850–1160 cal. yr BP) environmental history of Sierra de Gádor in southern Spain. The local vegetation dynamics are reconstructed through theExpand
Holocene environmental change in a montane region of southern Europe with a long history of human settlement
This paper uses a palynological sequence to examine the Holocene (8390–160 cal yr BP) environmental history of the Sierra de Baza (Granada, southeastern Spain) with the goal of establishing theExpand
Crossing forest thresholds: inertia and collapse in a Holocene sequence from south-central Spain
A Holocene palaeoecological sequence from Villaverde, south-central Spain, is presented. The pollen stratigraphy is used to infer past vegetation changes within a catchment area that represents theExpand
Abrupt vegetation changes in the Segura Mountains of southern Spain throughout the Holocene
Summary 1 The fossil pollen record of Canada de la Cruz in the Segura mountains of southern Spain yields insights into high-elevation vegetational dynamics over the last c. 8320 years. PhasesExpand
Past distribution and ecology of the cork oak (Quercus suber) in the Iberian Peninsula: a pollen-analytical approach
This study presents pollen-analytical data from continental and offshore Iberian Peninsula sites that include pollen curves of Quercus suber, to provide information on the past distribution andExpand
A coastal reservoir of biodiversity for Upper Pleistocene human populations
Carrion, J. S., Finlayson, C., Fernandez, S., Finlayson, G., Allue, E., Lopez-Saez, J. A., Lopez-Garcia, P., Gil-Romera, G., Bailey, G., Gonzalez-Samperiz, P. (2008). A coastal reservoir ofExpand
Late survival of Neanderthals at the southernmost extreme of Europe
Data is presented, based on a high-resolution record of human occupation from Gorham’s Cave, Gibraltar, that establish the survival of a population of Neanderthals to 28 kyr bp, and shows that the Neanderthal survived in isolated refuges well after the arrival of modern humans in Europe. Expand
Holocene biomass burning and global dynamics of the carbon cycle.
It is hypothesised that changes in fire regime may have affected the global CO2 concentration in the atmosphere through the Holocene, and quantitative reconstructions of biomass burning deduced from stratified charcoal records from Europe, and South-, Central- and North America, and Oceania to test the fire-carbon release hypothesis.
