Pollen records of late-Quaternary North American sediments. Academic Article uri icon


  • The 15 separately authored chapters deal with the pollen records and vegetational history of the regions of North America from the Wisconsinan to the Holocene. Vegetational changes during glacial retreat occur throughout the continent and the transitional period and its dating are of considerable importance. The papers are organized regionally from south to north through the book finishing with a paper on marine sediments and a bibliography of the Rocky Mountain area. Papers are abstracted separately in Palaeontology & Stratigraphy Abstracts. -M.A.Bass
