Abstract

Correspondence and multiple regression analysis of terrestrial molluscs in the loess sections of Achenheim (Alsace, France) has permitted the reconstruction of climatic variations during the last three glacial-interglacial cycles back to 339,000 yr B.P. The fossil faunas have been calibrated in relation to recent assemblages sampled in defined ecological conditions in Sweden and France. The applicability of the results have been tested at different sites by comparison with pollen analyses, and generally the evidence from both fossil groups is in good agreement
