POLLEN AND MACROFLORAL ANALYSIS OF BULK SOIL SAMPLES AND IDENTIFICATION OF DETRITAL CHARCOAL SAMPLES FROM ALONG THE MIDDLE FORK JOHN DAY RIVER, OREGON

Author(s): Kathryn Puseman; Linda Scott Cummings

Year: 2009

Summary

Samples were collected along the Middle Fork of the John Day River in east-central Oregon for a study of fluvial geomorphology. A total of 32 detrital charcoal/wood samples were submitted for identification, and 11 bulk soil samples were examined for pollen and macrofloral remains. These samples were recovered from soil pit or natural bank exposures along the river. After successful completion of this phase of the study, an additional eight pollen, eleven macrofloral, and two botanic samples were submitted to obtain additional information about the local, prehistoric vegetation. Macrofloral, including charcoal, and pollen records will be used to provide information concerning plant taxa that may have been present in this area prehistorically.
