Abstract

The AA. use a paleoecological record of eastern Beringia , the Populus subzone, to illustrate the range of issues that must be considered in interpreting radiocarbon-dated paleoenvironmental data. In particular, the relative merits of several climatic and paleoecologic hypotheses that have been advanced to explain the Populus subzone turn out to be highly dependent on the time scale used. Before discussing this example, the AA. illlustrate some of the potential effects of the calendar-age/radiocarbon age differential (which they refer to as the age differential) on the interpretation of individual records
