Abstract


In this study, we have investigated changes of vegetation in the Mediterranean Region of Turkey approximately for the last 5000 years using pollen analysis . There were some differences in the past vegetation, but principally vegetation structure has shown similarity with the modern one. Main difference appeared with the existence of Betula.

Keywords


Mediterranean region; arboreal-nonarboreal pollen; soil samples; radiocarbon dating; human impact on vegetation
