Abstract

A ca. 6000 year old peat sequence from Central Germany was investigated for various biomarkers and the biomarker signal was used to reconstruct vegetation changes using inversed modeling. While individual biomarkers sometimes provide contradicting results, the feeding of all biomarkers into the model provided quantitative results of shifts in plant communities. The use of inversed modeling of biomarkers as such was much more beneficial than simply interpreting individual biomarkers, separately. As such, shifts in vegetation as well as different settlement phases could be successfully differentiated by our novel approach.
