Abstract

This study concerns the carbon isotope variations in organic matter from the Kashiru peat deposits, which span at least the last 40,000 yr. The δ[13]C values of total organic matter (TOM) were determined in order to estimate the relative abundances of C[3] and C[4] plants in and around the swamp. The isotopic results are compared with the pollen data which have yielded a detailed record of vegetational and climatic changes in the Burundi mountains
