Vegetation, fire, and climate history during the last 18500 cal a BP in south-western Yunnan Province, China
High-resolution pollen and charcoal records from Qinghai Lake in south-western China are presented. The records reveal variations in vegetation, fire and climate history since 18 500 cal a BP. The results show that seven significant vegetation changes are recorded, which are responses to climate changes and/or fire events. Frequent and intensive fires occurred during the periods 17 900–15 000, 13 000–11 500 and 4280–980 cal a BP, corresponding to relatively dry climatic conditions. Combined...[Show more]
