Present-day pollen deposition in the 5000-km2 coastal lowlands surrounding Frobisher Bay, Baffin Island, has been assessed using 105 polster samples representing 41 sites. Pollen percentages are presented for 33 taxa, with the emphasis on indicators of low arctic tundra, which is mapped for this area. Significant differences in the percentages of Betula pollen were found between sites classified as low arctic tundra by the presence of Betula glandulosa shrubs and those without, which are… CONTINUE READING
