Pollen counts, profile (FRK II) from Connemara National Park, Letterfrack, Co. Galway, Ireland


Analyst: Máire BowlerLaboratory: Palaeoenvironmental Research Unit, NUI Galway, Galway, IrelandData analysis completed: 1986Sampling in field: Date of sampling: 1984-09-01. Cut from a clean peat bank; top of peat bank to cutover surface: 1.2 m; ca. 2.4 m of peat below (not cutover) - this extracted by digging a hole and removing a long monolith. Uppermost section: top to 1.14 m cut from bank left by turfcutters. Hole dug and took to depth of 3.5 m in 3 sections. Lowest deposit (in a small depression beside a boulder). sample density: variable; mainly 4 cm intervals. Pollen preparation: Lycopodium spore suspension of know concentration added; acetolysis, mounted in glycerine. 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). Distinction between Myrica and Corylus not regarded as reliable; individual taxa and combined counts given. Charcoal particles ≥37 um counted during routine pollen counting.
