M.; Granoszewski, Wojciech; Helmens, Karin F.; Huntley, Brian; Kondratienė, Ona; Kalnina, Laimdota; Kupryjanowicz, Mirosława; Malkiewicz, Małgorzata; Milner, Alice M.; Nita, Małgorzata; Noryśkiewicz, Bożena; Pidek, Irena A.; Reille, Maurice; Salonen, J. Sakari; Šeirienė, Vaida; Winter, Hanna; Tzedakis, P. Chronis; Birks, Harry John Betteley (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      The Eemian interglacial represents a natural experiment on how past vegetation with negligible human impact responded to amplified temperature changes compared to the Holocene. Here, we assemble 47 carefully selected Eemian ...
    • Does pollen-assemblage richness reflect floristic richness? A review of recent developments and future challenges 

      Birks, Harry John Betteley; Felde, Vivian Astrup; Bjune, Anne Elisabeth; Grytnes, John-Arvid; Seppä, Heikki; Giesecke, Thomas (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2016-05)
      Current interest and debate on pollen-assemblage richness as a proxy for past plant richness have prompted us to review recent developments in assessing whether modern pollen-assemblage richness reflects contemporary ...
    • Evolution of vegetation and climate variability on the Tibetan Plateau over the past 1.74 million years 

      Zhao, Yan; Tzedakis, P. Chronis; Li, Quan; Qin, Feng; Cui, Qiaoyu; Liang, Chen; Birks, Harry John Betteley; Liu, Yaoliang; Zhang, Zhiyong; Ge, Junyi; Zhao, Hui; Felde, Vivian Astrup; Deng, Chenglong; Cai, Maotang; Li, Huan; Ren, Weihe; Wei, Haicheng; Yang, Hanfei; Zhang, Jiawu; Yu, Zicheng; Guo, Zhengtang (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      The Tibetan Plateau exerts a major influence on Asian climate, but its long-term environmental history remains largely unknown. We present a detailed record of vegetation and climate changes over the past 1.74 million years ...
    • Global acceleration in rates of vegetation change over the past 18,000 years 

      Mottl, Ondrej; Flantua, Suzette; Bhatta, Kuber Prasad; Felde, Vivian Astrup; Giesecke, Thomas; Goring, Simon; Grimm, Eric C.; Haberle, Simon G.; Hooghiemstra, Henry; Ivory, Sarah J; Kuneš, Petr; Wolters, Steffen; Seddon, Alistair William Robin; Williams, John W. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Global vegetation over the past 18,000 years has been transformed first by the climate changes that accompanied the last deglaciation and again by increasing human pressures; however, the magnitude and patterns of rates ...
    • The potential to use documentation in national Red Lists to characterize red-listed forest species in Fennoscandia and to guide conservation 

      Tingstad, Lise; Grytnes, John-Arvid; Felde, Vivian Astrup; Juslén, Aino; Hyvärinen, Esko; Dahlberg, Anders (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2018-07)
      Loss of biodiversity is a pressing global issue, hence it is vital to facilitate informed and effective conservation. As conservation mainly operates at the level of habitats, aiming for species of conservation interest, ...
    • Using species attributes to characterize late-glacial and early-Holocene environments at Kråkenes, western Norway 

      Felde, Vivian Astrup; Birks, Hilary H (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019-08-16)
      Aim: We aim to use species attributes such as distributions and indicator values to reconstruct past biomes, environment, and temperatures from detailed plant‐macrofossil data covering the late glacial to the early Holocene ...
