    The end of the Pleistocene in North America was a time of remarkable change. Throughout much of this region, plant communities were reorganized as separate species of plants responded in their own individual ways to new climatic conditions. Huge glacial lakes that had formed in the Great Basin desiccated, some apparently with great speed.

In the p years, higher precipitation caused desert lakes to form which have since dried out. Higher glacial precipitation has been hypothesized to result from a southward shift of Pacific winter storm tracks. We compared Pacific Ocean data to lake levels from the interior west and found that Great Cited by:

1 -41 plates, 19 figs., 1 map, - 3 - $   The term "Great Basin" is slightly misleading; the region is actually made up of many small basins. The Great Salt Lake, Pyramid Lake, and the Humboldt Sink are a few of the "drains" in the Great Basin.

The Basin and Range region is the product of geological forces stretching the earth's crust, creating many north-south trending mountain ranges. The Pacific Coast Ranges (officially gazetted as the Pacific Mountain System in the United States but referred to as the Pacific Coast Ranges), are the series of mountain ranges that stretch along the West Coast of North America from Alaska south to Northern and Central Mexico.

The Pacific Coast Ranges are part of the North American Cordillera (sometimes known as the Western Cordillera, or in Countries: United States, Canada and Mexico.

This is the Great Basin, part of the Basin and Range Province, of North America, a high desert defined by rows of mountains that run roughly north to south, stretch marks on the Earth’s crust. The parallel lines of mountains that define the basin also make it prone to earthquakes, such as the large magnitude earthquake that rattled Wells.

The present article aims at establishing the first detailed, documentable, morphological and stratigraphical study of opines from the Pacific slope of North America, specifically from Vancouver Island, British Columbia southward to the north‐western part of Baja California (Text‐fig.
