Abstract Palynomorphs from a palaeomagnetically dated Late Pliocene sediment core (3.6–2.35 Ma) reflect highly variable climatic conditions and repeated expansion of steppe and boreo-alpine vegetation. Mixed coniferous forests ( Picea , Tsuga , Pinus ) with associated broadleaved taxa ( Quercus , Corylus , Ulmus , Tilia ) were affected by dry and cold intervals already between 3.48 and 3.39 Ma. Peak records of non-arboreal pollen types and spores, including subarctic-boreo-alpine Selaginella… CONTINUE READING
