Abstract
The geomorphic dynamics of the Barranco de Taburiente (La Palma, Canary Islands) has exposed fossil organic levels in their banks, where a large number of woody remains have been recovered. Samples have been located along ~2 km of the river and are clustered in two sites. Radiocarbon dating of the remains indicates that the recovered samples date back to the Late Holocene and have been mainly identified as Pinus canariensis, a pine species that may have long been dominant and stable in the landscapes of the caldera through time. The geomorphic processes are reconstructed from a sedimentological perspective and its interactions with the palaeovegetation at the longterm scale are discussed.
