Early Holocene climate variability and the timing and extent of the Holocene thermal maximum (HTM) in northern Iceland
Evidence needed to manage freshwater ecosystems in a changing climate: turning adaptation principles into practice.
Environmental controls on modern chironomid faunas from NW Iceland and implications for reconstructing climate change
Reconstructing climate change quantitatively over millennial timescales is crucial for understanding the processes that affect the climate system. One of the best methods for producing high…
Lacustrine evidence of early-Holocene environmental change in northern Iceland: a multiproxy palaeoecology and stable isotope study
Early-Holocene warming in Iceland caused rapid glacial ice melt which led to exposed landscapes on which soils developed and floras quickly established. Our chironomid-based records from northern…
The macroecology of animal versus wind pollination: ecological factors are more important than historical climate stability
Investigating a range of hypotheses for the role of biotic and abiotic factors as determinants of the global variation in animal vs. wind pollination results were consistent with the hypothesised reduced chance for wind-transported pollen reaching conspecific flowers in species-rich communities, and reduced relative effectiveness of wind dispersal in humid areas.
A global database of Holocene paleotemperature records
A global compilation of quality-controlled, published, temperature-sensitive proxy records extending back 12,000 years through the Holocene, which can be used to reconstruct the spatiotemporal evolution of Holocene temperature at global to regional scales, is presented.

A multiproxy Lateglacial environmental record is presented for a ca. 3.5‐m lacustrine sequence retrieved from a small basin (ca. 2 km2) at Thomastown Bog in County Meath, Ireland. Sediment chemistry,…
Climatic variability during the last millennium in Western Iceland from lake sediment records
The aim of this research was to create a decadal-scale terrestrial quantitative palaeoclimate record for NW Iceland from lake sediments for the last millennium. Geochemical, stable isotope and…
Subfossil chironomid variability in surface sediment samples from Icelandic lakes: implications for the development and use of training sets
A suite of surface sediment samples from three Icelandic lakes was analysed for subfossil chironomid head capsules, and a quantitative July air temperature inference model was applied to the data to…
