Preliminary palaeoenvironmental implications of pollen analysis of middle Breccia from Sterkfontein

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

SUCCESSIVE excavations at the Sterkfontein site, about 50 km west of Johannesburg, have yielded numerous vertebrate remains, including those of Australopithecus and possibly Homo, together with some artefacts. The geology and stratigraphy of Sterkfontein have been described by Butzer1 and by Partridge2, and Vrba3,4 has discussed the chronological and palaeoecological implications of the fossil mammals found there.
