Abstract

The AA. test the relationship of environmental water to hackberry carbonate δ O 18 values via a database of carbonate δ O 18 values from 101 North American sites. Using 30-yr averaged temperature data from these sites they then construct a predictive relationship between hackberry endocarp carbonate δ O 18 values and average daily maximum growing season temperature. They applied the relationship revealed by this set of modern hackberry endocarp carbonate from Pintwater Cave in the Pintwater Range of Southern Nevada. These results have particular importance with regard to global temperature estimates and inferred climatic regimes for this period referred to as the Holocene thermal maximum
