Long-term fire ecology can help to better understand the major role played by fire in driving vegetation composition. The Toledo Mountains of central Spain (westernmost edge of the Mediterranean basin) are a mid-elevation mountain complex with scarce current anthropic intervention. These features provide a perfect setting to study patterns of late Holocene fire activity and landscape transformation. Here, we have combined macroscopic charcoal analysis with palynological data in three peat sequences (El Perro, Brezoso, and Viñuelas mires) to reconstruct fire regimes during recent millennia and their linkages to changes in vegetation, land use, and climatic conditions. These results contribute to prove how fire regimes have changed along with human societies, being more related to land use and less dependent on climatic cycles.View this paper.
