Summary
Abstract: The paleo-ecosystems maps are based on simple compilations of the available information in the literature, relying heavily on the conclusions given by review papers for each subregion. Dates are given in radiocarbon years; the actual chronology in terms of 'real' years is still being worked out in the literature.

The maps presented are based on inter-disciplinary interpretation of evidence from ... View entire text
