The lower colorado river valley usa a pleistocene desert

, : The lower colorado river valley usa a pleistocene desert. Quaternary Research (Orlando) 25(3): 392-400

A chronological sequence of plant macrofossil assemblages from twenty-five pack rat middens provides a record of desert scrub vegetation for most of the last 13,380 yr B.P. from a hyperarid portion of the lower Colorado River Valley. At the end of the late Wisconsin, and probably during much of the Quaternary, the Picacho Peak area, Imperial county, California, supported a typical Mohave Desert association of Larrea divaricata (creosote bush), Coleogyne ramosissima (blackbrush), Yucca brevifolia (Joshua tree), and Y. whipplei (Whipple yucca). Recent arrivals of Sonoran Desert plants such as Olneya tesota (ironwood) and Fouquieria splendens (ocotillo) suggest that the area supported relatively modern Sonoran desert scrub species for relatively short periods during the interglaciations.
