Significant changes in terrestrial and marine environments of Baffin Bay occurred throughout the late Pliocene to Holocene. Upper Pliocene and lowermost Pleistocene sediments contain abundant pollen and spores, which indicates the existence of open, coniferous, boreal forest to forest tundra in areas surrounding Baffin Bay. The late Pliocene-earliest Pleistocene also is characterized by relatively rich, dinoflagellate cyst and acritarch assemblages of boreal character, in which the dominance of Cymatiosphaera and Peridiniaceae may indicate neritic influx...
