Abstract

Pollen analysis of organic sediments from a crater lake in north‐east Queensland provides a vegetation record from 10,000 B.P. to the present day. An initial sclerophyll vegetation was succeeded by rain forest about 7600 B.P., probably under increasing effective precipitation. Rain forest then persisted to the present day changing progressively from a ‘warm temperate’ to a ‘dry subtropical’ kind, almost certainly as a result of an increase in temperature.
