Abstract

Last-glacial paleoenvironments have been reconstructed from a pollen and charcoal record analyzed in organic sediments and dated. The site is located near the village Catas Atlas in the lower highland region of southeastern Brazil. The completely different last-glacial environment, in comparison to the present-day environment, reflects a dry and cold climate with strong frosts during the winter months. Temperatures of 5°-7°C below those of the present are inferred for the last glaciation
