  • Previously Only Three Terrestrial Interglacial Periods Were Known From Southern Scandinavia

  • We Present A New Interglacial–Interstadial Pollen
  • Plant Macrofossil And Charcoal Record From Trelde Klint
  • Denmark
  • And Analyse Its Biostratigraphy
  • Correlation With Other European Records
  • Vegetation Development
  • Fire Dynamics And Absolute Dating
  • Except For A Slight Truncation Of The Early Part Of The Record
  • The Pollen Stratigraphy Exhibits A Full Interglacial Succession
  • Including Temperate Trees (Quercus

  • Macrofossil Analysis Allowed Identification To Species Level For Quercus Robur
  • Picea Abies And Two Mosses
  • Conifers (Pinus And Picea) Dominate The Pollen Record Of The Interglacial Sequence
  • And The Occurrence Of Larix Pollen In The Top Part Of The Interglacial Record As Well As In The Inte
  • The Overall Diversity Of Tree Genera Is Rather Low
  • These Biostratigraphical Features Suggest That Trelde Klint Is Unique Among Danish Records
  • But It Is Similar To Records From Northern Germany
