Stable carbon isotope data for Cedrus atlantica pollen

Published: 5 Jul 2019 | Version 1 | DOI: 10.17632/drhptnhg43.1

Description of this data

Stable carbon isotope analysis data for modern pollen and sporopollenin from Cedrus atlantica trees (collected in Morocco and across Europe). And, stable carbon isotope analysis data for fossil pollen from Cedrus, sampled from 2 sediment cores at Sidi Ali and Col du Zad, Middle Atlas, Morocco.

The modern pollen isotope data is compared with paired samples from leaves and stem material from the same sampled trees.

The fossil pollen isotope data is compared with paired bulk sediment and concentrated organic samples from the same depths/age as the pollen, from the same core samples.

For the fossil pollen isotope data, the Cedrus pollen data from the 2 core sites is also included.
