Erik de Boer reconstructs the distribution of main vegetation types and the natural vegetation dynamics in Mauritius since the last glacial maximum (21,000 years ago) from terrestrial sediment cores. Palynological and macrofossil analysis provide information on vegetation composition and vegetation change, whereas local environmental and regional conditions are derived from pollen and diatom assemblages, ostracod-based isotope analysis, and granulometric and geochemical analysis.
