Abstract: The Younger Dryas Event has been recorded in Europe, North and South America and in Northern Part of China, although up to now, no any evidence has been found in the Southern China. A pollen spectrum in Nanling Region showed that there existed a sharp decrease of the evergreen-broad-leaved tree pollen around 10 400 a BP. It may be the effect of the Younger Dryas Event on the lower-latitude of China.

Key words: Younger Dryas Event, Pollen analysis, East Part of Nanling Mountain of China
