Abstract

Two new Holocene pollen diagrams are presented from central East Anglia. Using these sites and others from the same area, regional pollen assemblage‐zones for the area are formally defined. The regional pollen assemblage‐zones are then combined with zones from other well‐dated sequences in the British Isles to produce time/space diagrams for vegetation history along three transects across the islands. It is shown that pollen assemblage‐zones have only a limited extent in time and space. Forest vegetation has varied almost continually in time and space throughout the Holocene and over the whole of the British Isles.
