Stratigraphy, pollen and 14 C dating of Johnston's Gum Hole, a late Quaternary fossil kauri (Agathis australis) site, Northland, New Zealand
Johnston's Gum Hole provides a discontinuous pollen record commencing late in Marine Isotope Stage 5 (MIS 5). In combination with other published records from the region, the Aupouri Peninsula is reconstructed to have been continuously forested through much of the last glacial cycle with the oscillation of Agathis- and Nothofagus-dominated forest corresponding to stadials and interstadials, respectively. A northward latitudinal expansion of beech forest to 35°S is demonstrated. Kauri demise at...[Show more]
