The newly discovered Kap København Formation from Peary Land, North Greenland, throws light on Late Tertiary/Early Quaternary palaeoenvironment in earth's northernmost land area.

At this time forest tundra with phytogeographic affinity to recent North American ecosystems grew in the area. The circumpolar tundra zone was absent, but the flora included several species which are now confined to the arctic, indicating that present tundra ecosystems may in part be derived from plant communities in the boreal forest.
