Abstract

Aiming for a high-resolution Quaternary history for southeastern China, this paper documents palynological details and uses the synthesized data, as well as those for diatoms and foraminifera, to interpret local sea-level and climatic changes. Pollen in Quaternary deposits from the subtropical Hanjiang delta records 3 major phases in the local vegetation and climate history during the last 55,000 yr. The Holocene warming, however, did not bring back moisture-sensitive taxa, indicating high seasonal aridity probably caused by renewed monsoon conditions
