A late Early Pleistocene pollen record was obtained from a coastal site in Auckland, New Zealand. A combination of isothermal plateau fission track ages on interbedded tephras, palaeomagnetism, palynostratigraphy and orbital tuning to the marine oxygen isotope record of Ocean Drilling Program Site 677 constrained the age of the topmost 28 m of sediments to c. 1.4-1.0 Ma (Marine Isotope Stages (MIS) 45-28). For this interval a diverse pollen record consisting of mostly extant pollen types shows...[Show more]
