An Atlas of Past and Present Pollen Maps for Europe, 0-13,000 Years Ago [link]Paper  doi  abstract   bibtex   
The present work is a palynological study presenting the synthesis of available pollen-analytical data for the European Late-Glacial and Holocene, and demonstrating the palaeo-ecological value of isopoll mapping of many pollen types at a broad geographical scale. The included maps are concerned with the frequencies of pollen of all the major European trees and shrubs and of many of the important dwarf-shrubs and herbs at 500- or 1000-year intervals. They are shown to provide a number of possible applications in formulating hypotheses on the taxonomical and ecological relationships of certain taxa and on their present distribution, on the directions and rates of migration of the major European trees and the changing composition of vegetation in Europe, and on past climatic changes, soil development and man's activities. The Atlas contains present-day and fossil pollen maps of various taxa, a list of sites included in the database and 34 overlay maps in a separate folder. As a first synthesis of European pollen data for the 13000 years since the last glaciation, the book will certainly be of great interest and value to specialists in palynology and related fields. - Review (J. Tupy)
