Abstract

The newly discovered Kap Kobenhavn Formation from Peary Land, N Greenland, throws light on the Late Tertiary/Early Quaternary palaeoenvironment. 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.-from English summary
