The transitional zone between the boreal forest and the northern coastal area of the Arctic Ocean in the far north of Fennoscandia is a globally important ecotone. The pollen stratigraphy of 4 lakes, Lakes Hopseidet and Ifjord in Norway and Lakes Skaidejavri and Rautuselkä in northern Finland, was studied to reveal the post-glacial dynamics of the vegetation in this ecotone. These lakes were selected to represent the different vegetation zones within the area and the altitudinal changes of these vegetation zones
