Pollen evidence of changing Holocene monsoon climate in Sichuan Province, China

Auteur :
JARVIS, D. I.

Description :
Pollen evidence from Lake Shayema, Mianning County, was obtained to examine postglacial vegetation and climatic change in southwestern Sichuan. The pollen record displays several changes in the vegetation over the last 11 000 yr. Except for increased disturbance starting ca. 1 000 yr B.P., the predominance of sclerophyllous vegetation continued until today. The pollen results are compatible with proposed global circulation hypotheses of a strengthened monsoon system during the early to mid Holocene.
