Abstract:

An undisturbed sediment core taken from Round Lake, Hawke's Bay, New Zealand, using a specially designed sterile sampler, has been dated by tephra analysis and radiocarbon and analysed for pollen, charcoal and DNA. It appears to cover the last ca. 3600 years. There are clear indications of Māori effects on vegetation from ca. 800 BP.
