Palynological evidence from Quaternary sediments in Southeast Asia, a review
Pollen analyses of surface samples from Southeast Asia create an important reference for reading the fossile pollen records because information about the ecology of tropical vegetations is still limited. Changes in the altitudinal vegetation zonation in mountain areas, possibly indicating changes in the climate are the subject of palynological studies. Coastal sediments provide palynological evidence for coastline changes, possibly indicating changes in the sea level. The impacf of man on the vegetation in Southeast Asia is very difficult to prove palynologically. Cultivated plants are not recognizable in the pollen records.
