This area is well-known as it provides both a Late Pleistocene palaeoecological record (Pini et al., 2010) and several Middle to Late Palaeolithic sites yielding evidence of Neandertal and AMH occupation (Grotta Fumane and Riparo Broion shelter). High-resolution palynostratigraphic researches are currently in progress on the Lake Fimon cores to answer specific questions relevant to the ERC Project, i.e. the effects of climate variability on the environments of last Neandertals – early AMH, the role of fire, etc.
The first meeting of the CNR Working Group on the Dynamics of Paleoclimate focused on the history and dynamics of climate during the last 150 k-years. Federica Badino presented: “L’impatto degli Heinrich Events sugli ecosistemi terrestri: individuazione di proxies paleoecologici e sedimentologici lacustri in Nord Italia e analisi delle loro serie temporali ad alta risoluzione”
