Summary
Abstract: In order to support these and other paleoenvironmental applications of
plant macrofossil data, a cooperative North American Plant Macrofossil
Database is being organized and compiled under sponsorship of the NOAA
Paleoclimatatology Program. The database concentrates on Quaternary
plant macrofossils from sediments in Greenland and North America north
of Mexico (i.e. United States and Canada). A ... View entire text
