Summary
Abstract: The Global Palaeovegetation Mapping (BIOME 6000) Project is a community-wide
collaboration inaugurated in 1994 under the joint auspices of four of the
elements of the International Geosphere-Biosphere Program. The aims of BIOME
6000 are to: - create fully-documented pollen and plant macrofossil data sets
for 6000 and 18,000 years before present (yr B.P.) - construct ... View entire text
