    Abstract

    Pollen analysis of this core from Lynch's Crater provides a more detailed and continuous Holocene record than has been obtained previously from the site. The pattern of dry‐land vegetation changes appears broadly similar to those from other sites covering this period from the Atherton Tableland, though problems of dating do place some restriction on temporal correlations between them. Swamp forest is recorded for the first time within the region from pollen and plant macroremains, and this existed from the time of arrival of rainforest, probably about 8500 years B.P. until between 6000 and 4500 B.P. Firing by Aborigines in addition to climate change is considered to have been an important factor in swamp forest destruction and in the promotion of subsequent changes in swamp vegetation.
