Description

The data file is the raw data collected in Fiby urskog, south Sweden in order to perform a paleoecological study, covering ca 7000 years, using pollen analysis, including spores, charcoal fragments and mineral particles from a small wetland basin. 14C dating, diatom analysis and shore displacement data aided in dating the vegetation succession. Indicators of human impact and other disturbances, during the last ca 1000 years, are given particular attention as well as Picea immigration.

Description

Pollen was extracted from the sediment with a Russian peat corer (diameter 5 cm) every 2.5 cm down to ca 100 cm. Standard acetolysis method was used to extract pollen and spores. Treatment with hydrofluoric acid was performed on the lowermost part of the sediment to separate the large number of mineral particles.
