Early Vistulian vegetation history and climate change at Gutów (Wielkopolska Lowland) from pollen analysis

Małgorzata Malkiewicz

Abstract


Pollen assemblages in peat and silt deposits from a core drilled at Gutów, Wielkopolska Lowland, have been analysed, enabling characterization of the development of vegetation and of palaeoenviromental change. The pollen analysis shows phases with forest and open vegetation communities alternating in response to climate changes. The age of the succession can be related to the stadials and interstadials of the Early Vistulian.
