Abstract english

Pollen and sediment stratigraphic analyses of a transect of core sequences are used to reconstruct Holocene lake-level changes in Lake Igelsjon, southern Sweden. The pattern of changes seen in the records is related to climatic/hydrological changes and agrees principally with the pattern characteristically found in lakes in southern Sweden. However, compared with an earlier study based on isotopic analysis of lake sediments by Hammarlund et al. (2003), some significant differences are found in the early Holocene, and possible explanations for these differences are discussed.
