Abstract: Five Late Oligocene fossil plant assemblages from Hungary were subjected to a climate analysis adopting the Coexistence Approach. Four climate variables (mean annual temperature, temperature of the coldest and warmest month, mean annual precipitation) were estimated quantitatively. Resultant limits of values for the variables indicate a warm temperate (Cfa-type) climate, which conforms to the results of earlier qualitative palaeoclimate reconstructions. As compared to climate estimates of coeval floras from the Eastern Alps distinct values of temperature variables were displayed by Como (Italy) and Govce (Slovenia) which may be attributable either to palaeogeographical or methodological reasons.
