Abstract Knowledge about vegetation dynamics during the last glacial and deglacial periods in southeastern North America is under-constrained owing to low site density and problematic chronologies. New pollen records from two classic sites, Anderson Pond, TN, and Jackson Pond, KY, supported by AMS 14C age models, span 25.2–13.7 ka and 31.0–15.4 ka, respectively. A transition from Pinus dominance to Picea dominance is recorded at Jackson Pond ca. 26.2 ka, ~ coincident with Heinrich Event H2… 
Vegetation history since the last glacial maximum in the Ozark highlands (USA): A new record from Cupola Pond, Missouri
Abstract The timing and drivers of vegetation dynamics and formation of no-analog plant communities during the last deglaciation in the unglaciated southeastern US are poorly understood. We present a
Late Quaternary vegetation, climate, and fire history of the Southeast Atlantic Coastal Plain based on a 30,000-yr multi-proxy record from White Pond, South Carolina, USA
Abstract The patterns and drivers of late Quaternary vegetation dynamics in the southeastern United States are poorly understood due to low site density, problematic chronologies, and a paucity of
Late-Quaternary records of vegetation and fire in southeastern North Carolina from Jones Lake and Singletary Lake
Abstract We conducted fossil pollen, charcoal, and geochemical analyses of sediment cores from Jones Lake and Singletary Lake spanning the last ∼50,000 cal yr B.P. to examine the linkages between
Quaternary chronostratigraphy and stable isotope paleoecology of Big Bone Lick, Kentucky, USA
Big Bone Lick (BBL) in northern Kentucky, USA has been a critical geologic site in the historical development of North American Quaternary vertebrate paleontology since the 1700s. Sedimentology,
An improved chronology for the microscopic charcoal and pollen records from Anderson Pond, Tennessee, USA
Abstract Anderson Pond in eastern Tennessee is one of only a handful of sites in the interior southeastern US where researchers have developed pollen records that extend to the last full glacial
Sedimentary Proxy Evidence of a Mid-Holocene Hypsithermal Event in the Location of a Current Warming Hole, North Carolina, USA
A wetland deposit from the southern Appalachian mountains of North Carolina, USA, has been radiocarbon dated and shows continuous deposition from the early Holocene to the present. Non-coastal
Temperature variations in the southern Great Lakes during the last deglaciation: Comparison between pollen and GDGT proxies
Abstract Our understanding of deglacial climate history in the southern Great Lakes region of the United States is primarily based upon fossil pollen data, with few independent and multi-proxy
Micromorphology of late Pleistocene and Holocene sediments and a new interpretation of the Holocene chronology at Anderson Pond, Tennessee, USA
Abstract Thin-section (micromorphological) analysis of samples from the upper 1.5 m of a core obtained in 2007 from Anderson Pond, Tennessee, reveals a coherent but discontinuous record of late
Compound-specific isotope records of late-quaternary environmental change in southeastern North Carolina
Abstract Reconstructions of late Quaternary paleohydrology are rare from the U.S. Atlantic coastal plain (ACP). Here we present compound-specific hydrogen (δ2Halkane) and carbon (δ13Calkane) isotope
A 23,000-year microscopic charcoal record from Anderson Pond, Tennessee, USA
ABSTRACT Charcoal records of past fires are important for reconstruction of palaeoenvironments and palaeoclimate, particularly when compared with pollen records of past vegetation, but such records


Late Quaternary Vegetational History at Cupola Pond, Ozark National Scenic Riverways, Southeastern Missouri
A· 12 meter core of lacustrine sediments from C�pola Pond, Ripley County, Missouri, provides the first continuous record in the Ozark Plateaus Region of ecologic changes from full-glacial time to the
Late Quaternary Vegetation History of the Eastern Highland Rim and Adjacent Cumberland Plateau of Tennessee
Vegetation change during the past 25 000 years in and near the present Mixed Mesophytic Forest Region is inferred from pollen and plant macrofossil analyses of sediment cores from two sites on the
Paleoecology of central Kentucky since the last glacial maximum
Pollen grains and spores, plant macrofossils, and sponge spicules from a 7.2-m sediment core from Jackson Pond dating back to 20,000 yr B.P. are the basis for new interpretations of vegetational,
Pre-holocene and holocene pollen records of vegetation history from the Florida peninsula and their climatic implications
Abstract Pre-Holocene sediments may be found in sinkhole lakers or filled sinkholes in the Florida peninsula. Lake Tulane in south-central Florida yielded a core of 18.5 m under 22.7 m of water. The

A 6.2 meter core of lacustrine sediment from Jackson Pond , Larue County, Kentucky represent s the first continuous sequence from Kentucky permitting the vegetational reconstruction for the
Late-Pleistocene Vegetational Changes in Northeastern North Carolina
Regional and local environmental changes spanning the last 30 000 yr have been reconstructed based on paleoecological studies of the sediments in Rockyhock Bay, a peat—filled Carolina Bay in Chowan
Vegetation and environment in Eastern North America during the Last Glacial Maximum
Abstract Knowledge of the vegetation and environment of eastern North America during the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM) is important to understanding postglacial vegetational and biogeographic dynamics,

Evidence is provided that a now-extinct species of spruce (Picea critchfieldii sp. nov.) was widespread in eastern North America during the Last Glacial Maximum, suggesting that plant species have been able to respond to environmental changes of the past several glacial/interglacial cycles by migration.
Late-Quaternary vegetation history at White Pond on the inner Coastal Plain of South Carolina
Abstract At White Pond near Columbia, South Carolina, a pollen assemblage of Pinus banksiana (jack pine), Picea (spruce), and herbs is dated between 19,100 and 12,800 14 C yr B.P. Plants of sandhill
Plant formations different from any extant today apparently were widespread in North America and Europe during the last deglaciation, produced by the independent biogeographic responses of plant taxa
