The climate in Western Europe during the last Glacial/Interglacial cycle derived from pollen and insect remains
Using the pollen sequence of La Grande Pile XX (France), we review problems with the application of transfer functions in paleoclimatic reconstructions. One of them is to find modern analogues forExpand

Indian Summer Monsoon variations could have affected the early-Holocene woodland expansion in the Near East
Postglacial expansion of deciduous oak woodlands of the Zagros—Anti-Taurus Mountains, a major biome of the Near East, was delayed until the middle Holocene at ~6300 cal. yr BP. The current hypothesesExpand

Palaeoecological significance of the spores of the liverwort Riella (Riellaceae) in a late Pleistocene long pollen record from the hypersaline Lake Urmia, NW Iran
Spores of the liverwort Riella are documented in a long late-Pleistocene to early Holocene pollen record from the hypersaline Lake Urmia in NW Iran. The pollen record indicates that Riella aff.Expand

Application of the Global Bioclimatic Classification to Iran: implications for understanding the modern vegetation and biogeography
This study aims at proposing a new bioclimatic zonation for Iran based on the recently developed Global Bioclimatic Classification System (GBC) and tries to re-appraise this classification system byExpand

Rissian, Eemian and Würmian Coleoptera assemblages from La Grande Pile (Vosges, France)
Abstract The Grande Pile peat-bog sequence is one of the few west European sites that cover the entire time span of the last major climatic cycle (140,000 years). A recent program of coring hasExpand

Vegetation history of the SE section of the Zagros Mountains during the last five millennia; a pollen record from the Maharlou Lake, Fars Province, Iran
A pollen diagram was derived from a 150 cm core taken from the shallow hypersaline Lake Maharlou in the south-eastern part of the Zagros Mountains, SW Iran. The pollen record shows that QuercusExpand
