Abstract

Molluscs, collected from loess and loess-like profiles of Hungary by a method developed for high resolution stratigraphic studies, were statistically evaluated for a palaeoenvironmental reconstruction. Species were ranged according to 4 important ecological factors, namely: soil type, air humidity, temperature and vegetation. Based on temporal change in dominance, palaeoecological periods were discerned. During the Würm glacial period 5 major changes were detected by this method. Between the fourth and fifth interval so delimited (Late Würm and late glacial periods) 9 events of short duration could be identified and their ecological significance was reconstructed.
