Abstract

Several parameters representing aspects of vegetation, fire, erosion and lacustrine productivity are investigated to compare the environmental changes of the historic period against those of the last 2000 years at Lake Keilambete. The average sedimentation rate post-dating European settlement was found to be c.2.5 times that of the analysed pre-European period and the nature of this sediment is distinctly different. Pollen representation was generally stable prior to the European period, but instability increased subsequently, reflecting the influence of pastoralism and the increase in exotic plant species. The environmental change of the post-European period suggests that this landscape was particularly susceptible to the land-use strategies of the European settlers
