Paleobiology of the sand beneath the Valders diamicton at Valders, Wisconsin


In this paper the AA. provide additional C 14 age data, and they document the paleobiologic evidence for interpreting the paleoenvironment while the sand was accumulating. The interpretation of a cold open environment is supported by the plant macrofossils of more than 20 species, dominated by those of open mineral soils that in North America occur largely in the tundra and open tundra-forest ecotone of northern Canada. Ice-wedge casts occur in the sand
