Abstract A 13 m long core from the lake-swamp at Pobochnoye (53°01′30″ N, 51°50′30″ E) in the Buzuluk pine forest in the middle part of the Volga River basin, Russia was studied for pollen, peat stratigraphy, mollusc, δ18O/δ16O and δ13C/δ12C analyses and radiocarbon dating. For the first time the environment history of the east European Russia has been reconstructed for the last 14,000 years; ca 14,000–13,000 BP cold dry steppes spread across the basin of the Samara River. Isotope data indicate that the main climate shift occurred ca 10,000 BP at the Lateglacial–Holocene transition when climate became warmer and forests expanded. Pinus sylvestris L. expanded 10,000 BP. Ca 9,000 BP Ulmus, Quercus and Corylus appeared in the Buzuluk forest followed at ca. 7,000 BP by Alnus, then Tilia and Acer at 6000 BP. Between 6000 and 4500 BP the climatic conditions were optimal for the forest growth in the Samara River basin. 5500–5000 BP the lake became shallower and was transformed into the eutrophic peat swamp. Between 4500–3500 BP climate became drier and hotter and forest less abundant. Between 3500–2400 BP the forest cover again increased. Between 2400–2000 BP the pine forest area has reduced, apparently due to increased dryness, and around 2000 BP the modern environment in the Buzuluk area has been in existence.
