Middle Miocene to Holocene pollen assemblages reveal a history of environmental change in northern Australia. Grass pollen appeared, but was rare, in the late Miocene and was consistently present throughout the Pliocene, but did not become abundant until the Pleistocene. Myrtaceae pollen, characteristic of late Cenozoic assemblages in eastern Australia, is poorly represented, and no unequivocal evidence of rain forest was found. presented as numbers of grains counted
