LOWE J. J. ;


This paper reviews pollen-stratigraphic evidence from proposed interglacial and pure-late Devensian interstadial sites in Scotland. In a first part the stratigraphic details of each of the sites are summarised and discussed. In the second part general problems of interpretation are discussed in the light of the stratigraphic details. In the concluding section of the paper certain procedures are proposed that may permit a clearer assessment of potential problems of taphonomy in pollen stratigraphy.
