Abstract

According to the detailed sedimentological and paleontological analyses carried out on samples taken from the Sárrél-Nádasciladány core section, a complete series of fluvial-lacustrine and marshland deposits could be identified, which began to develop during the Late Glacial and culminated at the beginning of the Holocene. The highly characteristic alterations in the biofacies were linked to changes in the lithofacies within this sequence, resulting in a transition of the dominance of moving-water species at its beginning to that of lacustrine species preferring well-lit and well-oxygenated conditions later on. Finally the littoral and eutrophic species, as well as marshdwellers, became dominant in the secrion.
