  Macrofossils of tree species preserved in lake sediments indicate the local presence of the trees and ca n thus aid in more precise vegetational and, hence, climatic reconstructions. Hilary H.

Studies in the Vegetational History of the British Isles, pp. – Late Quaternary plant macrofossil assemblages from the Besigaon section of the Gokarna Formation 4) has been graphically rendered by using the software DMD (Draw up Microfossil Diagram, version ).   Late Quaternary chronologies are commonly constructed using AMS 14 C dating of plant macrofossils, because they are generally argued to provide the most reliable chronology. Although plant macrofossils are often relatively abundant and well preserved in a variety of site type, they are still potentially subject to a range of complications. Abstract. Quaternary limnic sediments from Velanská Cesta, a former lake in the Czech Republic, were investigated to document the response of an aquatic environment to global climatic shifts during the late Pleistocene-early Holocene transition.

  During the past decades, the interest in plant macrofossils has increased, and a number of records of Najas seeds have been published from the Quaternary of northwestern Europe. Macrofossil analyses of sediment samples from cores raised from the sea bottom in the southwestern Baltic Sea, Storebælt and Kattegat have provided many fossil records.   QUATERNARY RESEA () Carbon Isotope Composition of Lake Sediments in Relation to Lake Productivity and Radiocarbon Dating RAMON ARAVENA Department of Earth Sciences and Quaternary Sciences Institute, University of Waterloo, Waterloo, Ontario N2L 3G], Canada BARRY G.

Background: Quaternary plant ecology in much of the world has historically relied on morphological identification of macro- and microfossils from sediments of small freshwater lakes. Here, we report new protocols that reliably yield DNA sequence data from Holocene plant macrofossils and bulk lake sediment used to infer ecological change.
