Climate space, bioclimatic envelopes and coexistence methods for the reconstruction of past climates: a method using Australian beetles and significance for Quaternary reconstruction

Porch, Nicholas


If Quaternary palaeoclimatic reconstructions are to be adequately contextualised, it is vital that the nature of modern datasets and the limitations this places on interpreting Quaternary climates are made explicit - such issues are too infrequently considered. This paper describes a coexistence method for the reconstruction of past temperature and precipitation parameters in Australia, using fossil beetles. It presents the context for Quaternary palaeoclimatic reconstruction in terms of...[Show more]
