Abstract

Macro and micro botanical remains point to a Holocene environment of open grass and Chenopodiaceae vegetation, with varied herbs and some shrubs. The plant cover could have been somewhat denser than nowadays to explain the geomorphological, palaeontological and archaeological context at the same period. However the data show no qualitative latitudinal change in vegetation during the last 40,000 years.
