Abstract (in english)
   Pekárna Cave is the key Magdalenian site in Moravia, showing the development of this Upper palaeolithic culture in several stratigraphic positions (layers 8-6, or i-g). The basal Weichselian loess (layer 8/i) includes molluscs and microfauna corresponding to open landscapes of the Late Glacial. The overlying polygenetic soils (layers 7-6/gh), dated radiometrically to 13-12.5 ky BP, demonstrate a certain increase in temperature and moisture interrupted by a dry episode. The faunal and floral record indicates for that time an open grassland with pine as the dominating arboreal element. The layers above the Magdalenian (layer 5/f) include a fauna rich in the Holocene elements. The sequence is sealed by a travertine layer dated to 3.3-0.5 ky BP. This development is compared with the Barová cave which is poor in archaeological record but a more complete in its lithostratigraphic and faunal development.
   The last Weichselian loess with the Magdalenian (layer 11) lies interstratified between richness and in faunal and environmental diversity. In conclusion, it seems that the end of loess deposition is slightly metachronous under different environmental conditions at the individual caves
