The apparent lack of major climatic change during the Holocene in both the Vestfold Hills and on Macquarie Island is similar to interpretations from elsewhere in Antarctica, Marion Island and South Georgia. However, it differs from interpretations of events on Kerguelen. Possible reasons for the apparently constant climate are that it was only relatively constant or, that the ecological amplitudes of the fossil species are so wide that minor climatic changes are not reflected. -from Authors
