POLLEN SPECTRA FROM PLIOCENE CRAG AT ORFORD, SUFFOLK

Authors


SUMMARY

A pollen diagram from the pre-Pleistocene marine sediments near Orford, Suffolk, shows the presence of a forest flora, mainly coniferous, with a number of exotic genera of Eastern Asian/North American affinity, including Sequoia-type, Sciadopitys and Taxodium-type. It is suggested that this pollen assemblage may be Brunssumian (Lower Pliocene) in age.
