The preceding discussion has illustrated the constraint of using pollen as proxy data for reconstructing paleo-climates, particularly with the development of agriculture and human interference with the natural vegetation. These data, therefore, should be compared with other time-series of proxy data before arriving at conclusions about paleo-climatic scenarios. One source of these data is Lake Van in eastern Anatolia12 (Fig. 3). T. , Wong, S. Kempe and F. Kurtman, “A geological study of Lake Van, Eastern Turkey” Geologische Rundschau 73:701–734 (1984).
