- ... Paleoecological analysis using complementary indicators of vegetation and soil can provide spatially explicit information on ecological processes influencing trajectories of long‐term ecosystem change. Here we document the structure and dynamics of an old‐growth woodland before and after its inception 1000 years ago. We infer vegetation and soil characteristics from size and age distributions of b ...

- ... Peats and silts near Biggsville, western Illinois, have yielded the most detailed paleoecological record available in the midcontinent for the time when Late—Wisconsinan glaciers began to advance. These deposits were analyzed for pollen, vascular—plant macrofossils, bryophytes, insects, and stratigraphy, and date from °28 000 to 22 000 BP. Upland vegetation was a Picea—Pinus banksiana forest from ...
