Summary
Abstract: Analysis of 209 pollen assemblages from surface samples in ten vegetation types in the Florida Everglades form the basis to identify wetland sub-environments from the pollen record. This calibration dataset makes it possible to infer past trends in hydrology and disturbance regime based on pollen assemblages preserved in sediment cores. Pollen assemblages from sediment cores collected in different ... View entire text

Quality Pollen data from surface samples collected during the 1960s:

Column A (the sample ID) refers to the sites listing. Line 1 lists taxa identified in the samples. For lines 2-13, original raw data on total pollen grains were unavailable, so back-calculation from percentages to original counts was not possible. The numbers provided in these lines are percent ... View entire text
