Summary

This database integrates a list of vegetation transformations that occurred across the Southern and Middle Rockies since 21,000 years ago, the age of occurrence, the type of vegetation switch that occurred, whether the rates of vegetation change peaked at that time, and when applicable, the duration of peak rates of vegetation change.

Purpose

We developed approaches to detect time periods with rapid vegetation change and vegetation transformation that are independent of one another. This is a powerful approach that allows us to assess, for the first time, how quickly or slowly vegetation transformations can occur.
