Description

Pollen records from northern Grand Teton National Park, the Pinyon Peak Highlands, and southern Yellowstone National Park were examined to study the pattern of reforestation and climatic change following late-Pinedale Glaciation. The vegetational reconstruction was aided by analyses of associated plant macrofossila and the modern pollen rain of the region. Radiocarbon-age determinations and tephrochronology provided a chronologic framework to help correlate pollen records among sites.
