Abstract

This book forms the final results of the UNESCO/IGCP project 158B, and follows on from the Handbook of palaeoecology and palaeohydrology (1986). A synthesis of work is presented, dealing with biotic and physical environmental changes, including climate, hydrology, vegetation, human impact and soils. Regional syntheses are based on c500 key sites, covering 100 regions. Results are incorporated into 21 individually-authored chapters, each representing a different European country. Reference sites are of two kinds: secondary reference sites for palaeovegetation and chronology; and primary reference sites within palaeoecological reference areas comprising lakes and mires. Type regions represent regional syntheses of palaeoecological events presented with the use of a standardised scheme for stratigraphy.
