This project will integrate palynological and geochemical analyses of peatbogs sediments from high elevation tropical forests along the Atlantic Forest domain in the southeast Brazil. The main aim is to produce high-resolution records of forest species composition in selected forested mountain tops and to evaluate changes in plant diversity and abundance and to investigate how these respond to global climatic changes during Late Quaternary.
