Abstract

This paper presents a spatial reconstruction of climate in East Africa at 6000 C 14 yr B.P. Two different approaches using pollen data have been used, the standard best modern analogues method and the new plant functional type method, based on groups of pollen taxa. The results show a climate warmer than today by 2°C north of the equator and cooler southward (<-1°C). Although both methods indicate similar climatic patterns, the plant functional type method provides more consistent results
