Sparse pollen and spores from the lower Miocene section of CRP-1 derive from at least three sources. A low-diversity but persitent angiosperm-moss-liverwort assemblage may reflect contemporaneous herb-moss tundra and a climate with summer temperatures similar to that of islands in the vicinity of the Antarctic Convergence today. More diverse Nothofagus-podocarp-Proteaceae assemblages at c. 70 mbsf and 100- 116 mbsf may rcflect woody vegetation growing nearby in warmer sites or periods, long distance transport, or redeposition...
