Fire and vegetation change during the Early Pleistocene in southeastern Australia

Sniderman, J.M. Kale; Haberle, Simon

Description

Early Pleistocene vegetation in upland southeastern Australia included diverse rainforests and sclerophyll forests, which alternated on precessional timescales. The nature and timing of transitions between these biomes, and the role of fire in maintaining or driving transitions between them, are uncertain.

The pollen record documents a pattern of vegetation...[Show more]
