How to cite this Dataset


The EMBSeCBIO pollen database is a compilation of pollen counts or pollen percentages for 1132 modern entities (modern is defined as younger than 150 cal. years) and 187 fossil entities, in the Mediterranean-Black Sea Caspian-Corridor, located between 28°-49°N and 20°-62°E. The database includes tables describing the characteristics of the sites from which the records were obtained. Information on dating and the original age-depth models for the fossil records are included. New age-depth models have been created using the IntCal20 calibration curve for 148 records.
