Abstract

Palynological analyses of two ridge top peat profiles on subantarctic Macquarie Island are presented and discussed. The profiles record Holocenc vegetation changes In a small-scale mosaic pattern.Older records of island vegetation should be sought in valley and lake deposits. A preliminary account is given of several freshwater palaeolake deposits dating from the terminal Pleistocene and early Holocene.
