    ount Nimba region saw an influx of people fleeing the areas of unrest. During that time, in the absence of forestry law enforcement, major logging activities were carried out in the forest, bush meat was hunted on a large-scale, and slash-and-burn agriculture expanded. By , forest cover had been greatly reduced in the Mount Nimba area.   Holocene mangrove dynamics. When studying Holocene mangrove dynamics, using deposits within modern mangrove stands one has to consider bioturbation problems. Crabs can move mangrove sediments from >40 cm depth to the surface (Rademacher, ). Tidal inundation may mix local mangrove pollen assemblages with those from surrounding by:

      (1) Literature review. We searched the literature for studies on disturbance by fire, wind and bark beetles, and their impacts on ecosystem services as defined by the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment (MEA, ), as well as their effects on biodiversity, focusing on species richness and habitat quality as well as on indices of diversity (e.g. Shannon‐Index, Cited by: Understanding the response of ecosystems to past climate is critical for evaluating the impacts of future climate changes. A large-scale abrupt shift of vegetation in response to the Holocene gradual climate changes has been well documented for the Sahara-Sahel ecosystem. Whether such a non-linear response is of universal significance remains to be further by:
