Abstract: Khotinskiĭ describes the history of Holocene vegetation in the former USSR from European Russia through Siberia, starting with the Alleröd period and concluding with the beginning of the Sub-Atlantic period (ca. 16,000-2500 BP). Using data from about a thousand pollen diagrams and seven hundred radiocarbon dates, Khotinskiĭ compiles pollen diagrams and vegetation maps used to describe the changes in tree species and nonarboreal pollen from the Pre-Boreal through Sub-Atlantic periods (ca. 10,300-750 BP) that reflect changes in the climate. Khotinskiĭ points out that there were unique vegetation zones in the past, as present-day vegetation zones shifted and formed assemblages that do not exist today; also attributable to distinctive climatic conditions in the past.
