Abstract (in english)
   A stable isotope climatic record has been obtained from a 318 mm high stalagmite which grew up in the Holštejnská Cave located in the Moravian Karst, Czech Republic. The 230TH/Th234U age data from 7 segments separated from this stalagmite between its base and top document that its growth covers time span 13.6-4.3 ka BP. Variations of carbon and oxygen stable isotope ratios of calcite along a stalagmite vertical axis reflect climatic oscillations during the late Glacial, a temperature increase and a vegetation development during the Pleistocene/Holocene transition as well as the Holocene Optimum.
