Polar forests on the edge of extinction: what does the fossil spore and pollen evidence from East Antarctica say?
Diverse pollen and spore assemblages, spanning the Late Eocene preglacial-glacial transition, have been recovered from Ocean Drilling Program cores from Prydz Bay, East Antarctica. These microfloras are mostly in situ and provide an unparalleled record of terrestrial plant communities growing in Antarctica during the earliest stages of ice-cap formation. The evidence provides a basis for assessing the phytogeographic relationships of the Antarctic floras with other high-latitude floras in the...[Show more]
