Abstract

A unique remnant of forest dating back to the period 9733-7897 yr BC and consisting of hundreds of tree bases was discovered in the Czech Republic. We aimed to reveal the complex disturbance history of this (sub)fossil forest using dendrochronology, and to describe its detailed plant species...

Abstract

To reconstruct the vegetation and fire history of the Upper Engadine, two continuous sediment cores from Lej da Champfèr and Lej da San Murezzan (Upper Engadine Valley, southeastern Switzerland) were analysed for pollen, plant macrofossils, charcoal and kerogen. The chronologies of the cores are...

Abstract

Changes in bog vegetation during more than two millennia are the subject of the paper. More than 300 specimens of Pinus sylvestris tree remnants collected from oligotrophic peat deposits, from a raised bog in Lithuania, were dendrochronologically analysed. By synchronizing annual growth sequences...

Abstract

Pollen analytical, plant macrofossil and dendrochronological evidence together are used to reconstruct the late-glacial and Holocene vegetation history of the Highlands of Scotland. During the late-glacial period trees were almost, it not entirely, absent from the Highlands; vegetation analogous to ...

Abstract

Dendrochronology has shown that a buried forest (mainly of Pinus sylvestris) overgrown by Sphagnum bog, in S.W. Holland (described by A. V. Munaut, at Louvain), is a single-generation Pine stand lasting ca. 300 years, and radiocarbon measurements have given it a date of 2600-2300 B.C. These...
