Abstract

This study documents a multi-proxy palaeoecological record spanning 2000 years for the northern KwaZulu-Natal coastal plain. Data are presented from cores recovered from Lake Sibaya and the northernmost coastal flats of the Kosi lake system. Sedimentation rates are higher in the dated Sibaya core than the Kosi core. The pollen assemblages reflect changes from greater forest abundances to great savanna grassland abundances. The relative proportion of carbon in the samples decreases during the same tome frame, potentially reflecting a decline in biomass volumes at the two ecosystems. - (AJC)
