Introduction During the last 20,000 years, the world climate system has moved from a glacial state into the present interglaciation, known as the Holocene. In the course of the transition, the vast continental ice sheets disappeared, sea level rose worldwide, land and ocean surfaces warmed, and moisture became redistributed (Ruddiman and Wright 1987). These global events also set in motion a series of adjustments to regional climate that caused changes in vegetational composition, the formation… Expand
