Abstract

Pollen analysis of a 2 m core from the floor of Crown Lagoon in the Midlands of Tasmania indicates that the vegetation varied from grassy woodland through grassland to grassy woodland and grassy open-forest during late Pleistocene and Holocene times. It is suggested that these variations represent changes of climate from moister to colder and drier conditions. during the later part of the Last Glacial Stage (25 000-10 000 BP) with a return to moister conditions in the Holocene. The core is undated.
