Abstract / Description

This thesis seeks to investigate the Holocene environmental history of two areas of Northern Scotland with specific reference to the evidence for pine woodland density variations and tree-line dynamics. The evidence is derived from the biostratigraphy of of peat profiles sampled along altitudinal transects in the two upland areas of Gleann Einich in the Cairngorms (between c.500m OD and 930m OD) and Beinn Dearg in the Northwest Highlands (between c.270m OD and c.600m).
