Abstract

A long pollen record is derived from sediments of a lake dammed behind a low moraine of the last glaciation at 3°S latitude in the Ecuadorian Andes and is compared with a glacial age pollen record from the Amazon rainforest immediately below. Combining the Surucucho and San Juan Bosco records shows that Andean vegetation was affected by glacial cooling at all elevations. Plant associations were reformed as temperature-sensitive species found different centers of distribution with changing temperature
