Ilias Kousis Profil 1
 

 


 

Research Profile:

My PhD study aims at deciphering the response of vegetation to centennial- and millennial-scale climate change in SE European during the Middle Pleistocene. More specifically, my work focuses on a better understanding of the characteristics of plant refugia during the MIS 11 interglacial (424-374 ka), which is considered one of the best orbital analogues to the Holocene, and the MIS 12 glacial (478-424 ka), which represents one of the most extreme glacials of the entire Quaternary. To address these research questions, I currently carry out high-resolution pollen analyses on new core material from Lake Ohrid, Europe’s oldest lake, which has recently (2013) been drilled within the framework of ICDP.
