Abstract

The presence of trees in central and southern Europe during the last full-glaciation has long been a matter of debate. Here the AA. present macroscopic charcoal results from 31 sequences located throughout Hungary that provide unequivocal evidence for the presence of at least 7 different tree types between 32,500 and 16,500 C 14 yr B.P. This evidence is presented in conjunction with molluscan and pollen analyses to indicate that during the last full-glaciation, trees grew as far north as Hungary, in microenvironmentally favorable sites. These areas provided an important cold-stage refugium for the European flora and fauna
