Abstract

Plant macrofossils from 33 rodent middens sampled at 3 sites between 2910 and 3150 m elevation in the main canyon of the Río Salado yield a unique record of vegetation and climate over the past 22,000 cal yr BP. The AA. compare the Río Salado record to other Atacama midden series and evaluate the degree of synchroneity with other regional paleorecords to assess theories of climatic variability and change in the central Andes
