Abstract

Today the Central African rain forest is going to be destroyed and suffers by many disturbances. Economical and political crises with long lasting civil wars and thousand of refugees have locally led to a significant decrease of forested area. But research in geo- and biological sciences over the last 30 years have proved that the ecosystem rain forest is not as stable as supposed. It had been dramatically changed by natural variations in climate during the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM) and also during the Holocene. The study demonstrates by many examples from Central Africa in which way the recent rain forest environments were changed in the past. - (IFL)
