Short summary
We studied the vegetation and climate of southwestern South Africa for the period of the past 300000 years. Vegetation and climate development in this region are interesting because the vegetation of the Western Cape is a global biodiversity hotspot and because the archeology of the region substantially contributed to the understanding of the origins of modern humans. We found that the influence of precession variability on the vegetation and climate of southwestern South Africa is strong.
