Abstrakt

Macrofossil analyses of a Quaternary till-covered sequence in Washington Land north-western Greenland are indicative of biotas similar to those of today. The only southern extralimital species found is Empetrum nigrum; its presence indicates slightly higher summer temperatures than today. AMS radiocarbon dating confirms that the sequence is pre-Holocene and we suggest that the sequence belongs to the last interglacial stage.
