The AA. report a high-resolution pollen and Pediastrum record from sediments obtained from the bed of the Lake Bayanchagan, southern Inner Mongolia. Vegetation reconstruction is based on the objective assignment of pollen taxa to the plant functional type (PFT), based on broad classes of plants defined by stature, leaf form, phenology and climatic thresholds. Inner Mongolia is situated at the limit of the present East Asian monsoon and patterns of vegetation and climate changes in that region during the Holocene probably reflect fluctuations in the monsoon's response to solar insolation variations
