Dissimilarity mapping between fossil and contemporary pollen spectra in Europe for the past 13,000 years

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The aims of this study are : 1) to evaluate quantitatively the extent to which European pollen spectra for the last 13,000 years represent vegetation units lacking modern analogs| 2) to map the location and extent of no-analog vegetation at millenial intervals| and 3) to display the patterns, extent, and rates of change of pollen spectra, and hence, by inference, of vegetation and macroclimate, in Europe during the last 13,000 years. The degree of analogy between fossil and contemporary pollen spectra in Europe has been investigated using the chord-distance dissimilarity measure
