Some Caribbean forests were at their densest for the past 2000 years during the 'Little Ice Age', new research shows.
As more and more research is done, additional true facts about global warming will be brought forward for the public to read about.
This forest growth was not expected, because other areas in the region were cool and dry, but the curious finding shows that the effects of climate change can vary from place to place, say researchers.
From approximately 1350 to 1850, the Little Ice Age cooled low latitudes and dried the Caribbean including the Yucatan Peninsula. So you might expect to see evidence of this dry spell further west along the Gulf of Campeche, says Maria Lozano-Garcia, a palaeontologist at the National Autonomous University of Mexico.
