A 23,000-yr pollen record from Lake Euramoo, Wet Tropics of NE Queensland, Australia

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



A new extended pollen and charcoal record is presented from Lake Euramoo, which incorporates a complete record of vegetation change and fire history spanning the period from 23,000 cal. yr. B.P. to present. The pollen record is divided into 5 significant zones : dry sclerophyll woodland; wet sclerophyll woodland; warm temperate rainforest; dry subtropical rainforest; degraded dry subtropical rainforest with increasing influence of invasive species and fire. The process of rainforest development appears to be at least partly controlled by orbital forcing, though more local environmental variables and human activity are also significant factors
