Ice age southern Andes: a chronicle of palaeoecological events / C.J. Huesser.

Title: Ice age southern Andes: a chronicle of palaeoecological events / C.J. Huesser.
Author(s): Huesser, C. J.
Date: 2003.
Publisher: Amsterdam: Elsevier
Abstract: Traces paleoenvironments of >50,000 ¹⁴C yr of last glaciation in southern South America, based on paleoecological field work from mid-twentieth century to present, and building on earlier work by Auer and Caldenius. Twenty records presented place emphasis on last ice age and include high-resolution, submillenial data sets. Supplemental Holocene records show striking contrast with past glacial environments. Aims to (1) interpret from microfossils and biotic macroremains, glacio-climatic and ancillary paleoecological factors responsible for vegetation change, (2) identify glacial-interglacial migration and refugial patterns for a diversity of biota, and (3) demonstrate extent of intrahemispheric and polar hemispheric climatic synchroneity versus asynchroneity. Chapters cover climate, glaciation, land-sea level variations, volcanism, vegetation, "man, megafauna and fire", research methods, "ice age southern Andes", global connections (inc. Antarctica), etc.
