Summary

Pollen and macrofloral remains were examined from deposits in Hot Springs Cave, site

42JB7, just west of Fish Springs Marsh in western Utah. This site represents a small cave formed

during the Late Pleistocene along the Provo level of Lake Bonneville. Fish Springs marsh is

believed to have formed around 10,500 b.p., and occupation of the cave is thought to have started

at about this time. Pollen and macrofloral samples, including individual charcoal and botanic

samples, were collected from four levels in a test trench and from three levels in a posthole (test

pit) placed in the cave deposits. Pollen and macrofloral analyses will help determine the nature of

intact deposits and will be used to provide information concerning plant resources available to, and

possibly utilized by, the cave occupants.
