Pollen counts from short monoliths (FRK III and FRK IV) blanket bog at Connemara National Park, Letterfrack, Co. Galway, Ireland


Analyst: Michael O'ConnellLaboratory: Palaeoenvironmental Research Unit, NUI Galway, Galway, IrelandData analysis completed: 1987Sampling in field: 1985-08-20. Sample density: variable; mainly 2 cm intervals.Depths datum = peat/mineral soil interface; nominal depths used to facilitate plottingPollen preparation: Lycopodium spore suspension of know concentration added; acetolysis, mounted in glycerinePollen identification and counting: Cereal-type pollen differentiated using Beug (1961) criteria (37 um taken as cutoff point; but only pollen grains 40 um and greater included in cereal-type). Pollen nomenclature generally follows Moore et al. 1991. <1 = recorded outside the pollen counts (most samples searched for additional taxa). Myrica and Corylus distinguished. Charcoal particles ≥37 um counted during routine pollen counting.
