In this study, a loes- Stable carbon isotopic composition s–paleosol sequence in the southeastern Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region in northeastern (NE) China, which Organic matter is located outside the Chinese Loess Plateau, is chosen to reconstruct the vegetation history since ∼1.08 Ma. Vegetation Temperature exhibits a threshold value, which determines the growth of C plants in this study area. The organic C and C plants 3
