lost forest (green belt revisited)

Forest Found

From:  Mind the Gap - How open were European primeval forests? (H. John. B. Birks): At all sites, tree pollen values show the presence of closed-canopy forest throughout the early and mid post-glacial (i.e. they contained at least 60% tree pollen). Tree pollen values only drop below the critical 60% level during the past 3000 years, coincident with human impact.  Mitchell, F.J.G. (2005)  Hypothesis testing using palaeoecological data. J. Ecol. 93, 168–177
