Multi-proxy record of postglacial environmental change, south-central Melville Island, Northwest Territories, Canada



Multi-proxy record of postglacial environmental change, south-central Melville Island, Northwest Territories, Canada



Quaternary Research: 2, 247-258



A sediment core from Lake BC01 (75 degrees 10.945'N, 111 degrees 55.181'W, 225 m asl) on south-central Melville Island, NWT, Canada, provides the first continuous postglacial environmental record for the region. Fossil pollen results indicate that the postglacial landscape was dominated by Poaceae and <i>Salix</i>, typical of a High Arctic plant community, whereas the Arctic herb <i>Oxyria</i> underwent a gradual increase during the late Holocene.
