Abstract

The landscapes of northern New England and adjacent areas of Canada changed greatly between 14,000 and 9000 yr BP: deglaciation occured, sea levels and shorelines shifted, and a vegetational transition from tundra to closed forest took place. Data from 51 C-dated sites from a range of elevations were used to map ice and sea positions, physiognomic vegetational zones, and the spread of individual tree taxa in the region. A continuum of tundra-woodland-forest passed northeastward and northward without major hesitation or reversal.
