Reconstruction of Climate and Ecology of Skagit Valley, Washington.

Reconstruction of Climate and Ecology of Skagit Valley, Washington,from 27.7 to 19.8 ka Based on Plant and Beetle Macrofossils

Climate change has reorganized ecosystems throughout our planet’s history. Recognizing how ecosystems have responded to past changes in climate helps us understand the impact of future climate change. Changes in the abundance and diversity of pollen and macrofossils in cores of lake sediments form the basis for much of our understanding of the last glacial maximum climate and ecosystems in the Pacific Northwest.
