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.
