Molecular reconstruction of Holocene vegetation in Scandinavia based on pollen and sediment ancient DNA analysis

Matetovici, I., Haile, J., Fontana, S.L. and Parducci, L. (2011) Molecular reconstruction of Holocene vegetation in Scandinavia based on pollen and sediment ancient DNA analysis. In: XVIII International Botanical Congress IBC2011, 23 - 30 July, Melbourne, Australia.

Abstract

Analysis of pollen and sedimentary ancient DNA isolated from sediment cores is a new emerging tool allowing past vegetation reconstruction complementary to traditional pollen and macrofossils analysis. We compared results from pollen-based vegetation analysis with results obtained using pollen and sedimentary DNA and we evaluated the results of DNA analysis using material from two Holocene sediments sampled in the Scandes Mountains in central Scandinavia.
