Abstract


Charred macrobotanical remains from El Tossal de la Roca permit a better understanding of the Tardiglacial-Postglacial (Upper Palaeolithic levels) transition in Valencia region, showing evidence of a supramediterranean environment with Pinus nigra, Juniperus t. phoenicea and Quercus t. faginea. During the early Holocene (Epipaleolithic levels) Quercus ilex-coccifera is dominant, followed by Quercus t. faginea.
