High-resolution pollen record from core KW31, Gulf of Guinea, documents of the history of the lowland forests of West Equatorial Africa since 40,000 yr ago

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The aims of this paper are to present a new pollen record from the eastern Equatorial Atlantic and to synthesize pollen data from the adjacent continent in order to contribute to the debate on the evolution of the West African forest ecosystems during the last glacial period and the Holocene, and on its relationship with the regional climate. Core KW31 pollen content is discussed taking into account the difference transport agents to the ocean (water and wind). It is compared to the freshwater algae record on the same samples
