Quaternary pollen analysis : recent progress in palaeoecology and palaeoclimatology

Auteurs :

Description :
During the last decade Quaternary pollen analysis has developed towards improved pollen-taxonomical precision, automated pollen identification and more rigorous definition of pollen assemblages zones. There have been significant efforts to model the spatial representation of pollen records in terms of past vegetation patterns. The AA. review the difficulties in matching modelled post-glacial plant migration patterns with pollen-based palaeorecords and discuss the potential of DNA analysis of pollen to investigate the ancestry and past migration pathways of the plants.
