Summary

A data bank of British Quaternary plant fossil records has been established in the Subdepartment of Quaternary Research, Cambridge. The bank is based on an exhaustive survey of the literature and includes both fossil pollen and macrofossil records. The information entered on each record card includes, whenever possible: grid reference of site; zone, stage and radiocarbon date of sediment; average frequency of pollen type; details of stratigraphy and archaeological correlations. Examples of how the bank can be used are given.
