Abstract

The sediment sequence from the Upper Lerma Basin discussed in this paper has particularly good resolution for the Holocene. The AA. present the history of plant communities during the last 23,000 C 14 yr B.P. and evidence of the limnological evolution of Lake Chignahuapan. The pollen stratigraphy is compared with the revised glacial history of the adjacent Nevado de Toluca volcano and the late Holocene pollen record is related to the archaeological records. A comparison between the pollen records of the Upper Lerma Basin and the nearby Basin of Mexico is presented
