A synthesis is provided of Late-glacial (14-9 ka BP) environmental changes in lowland Switzerland (the `Swiss Plateau'). The chronology of deglaciation and subsequent developments in vegetation cover in the area are summarised. The sequence of climatic variations experienced in the region during the Late-glacial is then described and a curve representing the main palaeotemperature variations is presented.
