Description:
Abstract:
These maps are based on 11,700 fossil pollen samples and 1744 modern pollen samples. Twenty-one pollen taxa were included in analyses: Alnus, Fraxinum, Populus, Tilia, Fagus, Betula, Ulmus, Abies, Celtis, Corylus, Tsuga, Carya, Ostrya/Carpinus, Quercus, Pinus, Prairie, Cyperaceae, Picea, Liquidambar, Platanus, and Juglans. Analog/no anolog vegetation types were assigned to a 100x100km at 1000 year intervals using a three dimensional, time-space, interpolation scheme. To generate maps the paleocoast line/ocean and Laurentide Ice Sheet were overlain to mask out appropriate portions of equal area grid boxes. Age estimates are based on uncalibrated radiocarbon dates.
