Short summary
The climate fluctuates between warm and cold stages, forcing biodiversity to shift patterns according to climatic tolerance. Here we provide an analysis of the shifting patterns of climate in the Iberian Peninsula for the last 15 000 years. By analysing climate in the spatial and temporal dimensions, we were able to divide the peninsula into areas that shared similar climate patterns and to derive a map of climate stability for this period.
