ABSTRACT
We summarize palaeoclimatic oscillations recognizable in Cainozoic floras and vegetation of the Bohemian Massif and adjacent regions in Germany during the time span late Eocene to early Pleistocene. Statistical evaluation using Leaf Margin Analysis, Climate Leaf Analysis Multivariate Program and Coexistence Approach together with the Integrated Plant Record Vegetation Analysis has been employed to reconstruct climatic parameters (mainly Mean Annual Temperature, Mean Temperature of the coldest and the warmest months and Mean Annual Precipitation). Results of individual techniques have been compared and used for constructing curves that illustrate climatic trends. These methods can augment other sources of data to understand better the extent and timing of palaeoclimatic oscillations in Central Europe during the Cainozoic.
