Only since 1960 has a data base accumulated that contains enough radiocarbon dates to permit study of the timing and spatial patterns of the changes. In the northern Midwest, the network of radiocarbon-dated pollen diagrams is now sufficiently dense that the pollen data can be mapped in a form that reveals the patterns of past vegetation. -from Authors
