Abstract

Pollen diagrams from Lake Yeniçağa in northern Turkey published by Beug (Quaternary Paleoecology, Yale University Press, New Haven, 1967) and Bottema et al. (Palaeohistoria 35/36(1993/1994):13–72, 1995) are connected, reflecting the development of the vegetation over the time from the Older Dryas period to about ad 800. The sequence can be divided into four pollen zones with several subzones. Six periods of continuous human impact are described.
