Radiocarbon dated malacological records of two Late Pleistocene loess-paleosol sequences from SW-Hungary: paleoecological inferences

Dávid MOLNÁR et al.


The two loess-paleosol sequences of Villánykövesd and Máza preserved expressive paleoecological information of the Late Pleistocene environmental conditions of SW-Hungary. For malacological examinations sampling of 12 cm intervals were used and homogenous amounts of sediment (cca. 5 kg) were collected. During the malacological examinations more than 27,000 specimens were identified. Adjusting their environmental and climatic demands the paleoclimate and paleoenvironment of the last 80,000 years could be reconstructed
