Pollen samples from the Arava travertines, dated to oxygen isotope stages 5 and 7, show relatively high arboreal pollen levels. These spectra are probably a result of an expansion of the Mediterranean maquis in Transjordan, which indicates periods of wetter climatic conditions. These periods probably represent humid fluctuations within stages 5 and 7.
