Abstract

In this paper, Holocene lake-level changes and fossil pollen from Echo Lake, New Hampshire, are documented and the relationship between moisture-balance fluctuations and vegetation change in northern New England over the past 12,000 years is examined. Ground-penetrating radar profiles and 5 sediment cores provide evidence for 2 periods of low water levels. The correlation between lake-level and vegetation change suggests that moisture availability, in addition to temperature, helps to shape vegetation dynamics by directly affecting plant populations and by influencing plant-pathogen and other ecological interactions
