The dynamics of chironomid assemblages and vegetation during the Late Quaternary at laguna Facuil, Chonos Archipelago, south Chile

Massaferro, Julieta; Brooks, Stephen J; Haberle, Simon


We compare high-resolution pollen and chironomid records from the last 15,000 yr in Laguna Facil, southern Chile. Major vegetation and chironomid changes are recorded between ca 14,900 and 14,700 cal. yr BP. During the Lateglacial, changes in the chironomid stratigraphy lag behind changes in the pollen stratigraphy suggesting that the chironomids are responding to changes in the tree canopy or in soil chemistry brought about by vegetational development. At about 7200 cal. yr BP there is a...[Show more]
