Riding, James B.. 2006 The palynology of a peat sample from the Montrose district. Nottingham, UK, British Geological Survey, 8pp. (IR/06/040) (Unpublished)Before downloading, please read NORA policies.
The sample produced relatively abundant, typically British interglacial, pollen and spores. Dryopteris (buckler fern) spores dominate both samples, and arboreal (tree/shrub) and herb pollen is present in significantly lower proportions. These associations are indicative of a peat bog, dominated by buckler ferns. The palynoflora is typical of the Flandrian Stage.
