Abstract:
The Global Palaeovegetation Mapping (BIOME 6000) Project is a community-wide collaboration inaugurated in 1994 under the joint auspices of four of the elements of the International Geosphere-Biosphere Program. The aims of BIOME 6000 are to: - create fully-documented pollen and plant macrofossil data sets for 6000 and 18,000 years before present (yr B.P.) - construct global maps of biomes for these time periods, using a standard objective biomisation technique based on plant functional types (PFTs). This is the first release of the Biome6000 data. The data are organised according to publications. This first release only contains the most basic metadata (region, site name or code, latitude, longitude, and elevation) and the biome assignments for each of the sites, if available. A more detailed data report will be made available as soon as the regional data have come in. An updated Version 4.2 of BIOME 6000 is available from the University of Bristol: http://www.bridge.bris.ac.uk/resources/Databases/BIOMES_data
