Pollen analysis in North America is gradually adding more and more significant facts on the history of our forests in glaciated North America, showing likenesses and differences in succession in the various geographical locations; throwing into bold relief definite patterns of forest development for a given region or for several regions. Forest types also suggest climatic changes and fluctuations which made such forest types possible. Up to the present our eastern coastal areas received less attention from the pollen analyst than the interior central states. The analysis of peat from New Jersey by Potzger and Otto (7) and the studies by Deevey (3, 4) in Connecticut made at least a beginning in pollen study along the Atlantic coastal areas. They also accentuate the need of further studies along our eastern border to add to the completeness of the picture with respect to forest succession during post-glacial times, especially northward of the New Jersey and Connecticut stations. The present study has this expansion of area as its specific aim.
