Record #139047:

Post-glacial dynamics of vegetation and tree-lines in the far north of Fennoscandia / Heikki Seppä.

Title: Post-glacial dynamics of vegetation and tree-lines in the far north of Fennoscandia / Heikki Seppä.
Author(s): Seppä, Heikki.
Date: 1996.
In: Fennia. (1996.), Vol. 174(1) (1996)
Abstract: Transitional zone between boreal forest and northern coastal area in far north of Fennoscandia is important ecotone. Pollen influx and concentrations were used to estimate past locations of tree-line. Between 11 000 and 5 500 BP birch forests covered most of Nordkinn Peninsula, but did not reach the tundra lakes. Then rapid retreat of birch and pine tree-line led to end of birch forest there. Both species have since retreated gradually. Pine took 3000 years to invade northern Fennoscandia. Time-lag supports theory that early post-glacial migrations were controlled by complex set of factors.
