Summary

Fossil pollen, phytoliths, macrofloral remains,

and charcoal from archaeological and geological sites

at the Jewett Mine, Texas are analyzed in this

appendix. Pollen analysis provides an overview of

regional vegetation and hence paleoenvironments for

this area. Pollen columns were collected at an

alluvial geological site in the Buffalo Creek floodplain

and at an archaeological site 4ILNI06, in the

Lambs Creek drainage for this reconstruction.

Companion phytolith samples were collected from

the same profiles, and they supply information

concerning the mixture of grasses within the local

prairie. Together the pollen and phytolith records

provide a look at both local and regional vegetation

in the project area. Several samples were collected

from the present ground surface to evaluate the

modem pollen and phytolith records relative to

present vegetation.
