Marine Molluscs as Indicators of Environmental Change in Glaciated North America and Greenland during the Last 18 000 Years *

  author={Arthur S. Dyke and J Dale and R. Mcneely}
Dated mollusc collections are classified in assemblages to map paleofaunistic zones. Hiatella arctica and Mya truncata account for almost half the records and comprise a restricted arctic assemblage. Arctic assemblages comprise 70% and arcticdominated assemblages 80% of the database. Fifteen species dominate but 170 taxa are recorded. At last glacial maximum, the arctic zone extended from the Arctic Ocean to the Grand Banks. The boreal zone in the western Atlantic was compressed. The subarctic… CONTINUE READING
