We assessed the relationship between modern pollen rain and Andean forest vegetation regarding diversity. We compared presence-absence patterns of tree and pollen data using taxonomic surrogacy on a family level. Pollen presence-absence data represent tree vegetation data well, but uncertainties increase with decreasing altitude. Differences in diversity patterns can mainly be explained by wind-patterns and differences in evenness.
