Radiocarbon dated late-glacial Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) chronology from Central Poland

Marek KRĄPIEC et al.


Dendrochronologically dated wood of subfossil trunks of trees presents the basic material used at construction of the calibration curve. In the last years numerous studies have been aimed at construction of chronologies covering the late-glacial period (Kaiser et al. 2012). At present, Koźmin (Dzieduszyńska et al. 2014) and Kwiatków (Kolska Basin, Central Poland) proved to be very perspective sites, in which wood from the end of Allerød and Younger Dryas was recognized.
