About this book

This book aims to present the migration histories of all main trees and some selected shrub and herb taxa on the territory of Poland during the last 14,000 years BP. Dot and colour isopollen maps of 24 taxa of trees and shrubs and 14 herb taxa are presented. The sets of maps for each taxon are described and analyzed, and supplemented with short information about their present day distribution in Europe and in Poland, their ecological requirements, pollen production and dispersal, and expansion in Europe during the Late Glacial and Holocene. The summary chapters discuss the processes of vegetational changes during the Late Glacial, Early Holocene, Mid Holocene, Late Holocene and the youngest section of the Late Holocene showing the increasing human pressure.
