Climate and vegetation derived from a Pliocene-aged leaf flora from SE Shanxi Province, North China.

The Zhangcun Formation (3658?N, 11250?E), located at the boundary of Yushe and Wuxiang Counties in SE Shanxi Province, North China, was deposited in an intermontane lake basin and contains a rich assemblage of plant macro- and micro-fossils. CLAMP (Climate Leaf Analysis Multivariate Program) was used to determine the palaeoclimate quantitatively.
