Catalogue of pollen types
Notes on gymnosperms
Not native today, but has occurred (macrofossils and pollen) in
the pre-Holocene Quaternary.
Not native today, but has occurred (macrofossils and pollen)
in the pre-Holocene Quaternary.
Included in Juniperus-type by Moore et al. (1989), but
is the only species of the type found in the British Isles.
See Birks (1973) and Moore et al. (1991) for description of
the types within this family. Pollen of Ephedra may be
dispersed over considerable distances (see, for example, Maher 1964),
and it is frequently found in Quaternary sediments of the British
Isles, but is not known to have ever grown here.
