The Canadian Pollen Database
The Canadian Pollen Database project was initiated in the 1980's by J.C. Ritchie, then at the U of Toronto. Digital files were created of pollen diagrams, mostly from western and northern Canada. Pollen data were entered from the original counts sheets to be used for mapping and quantitative reconstructions of past climates (e.g. Anderson et al., 1989, 1991; Sawada et al., 1999; Gajewski et al., 2000). Many of these data have been already entered into the North American Pollen Database (NAPD). Here we are making available these data in the form of Excel files. Pollen counts, chronology information references and metadata are found in the files. We would like to thank the analysts of these data for their contributions. These data will be available in the NAPD and NEOTOMA; we are making them available here for convenience. For questions or further information, contact Konrad Gajewski.
