[{"name":"ryberg-2022-store-mosse-macrofossil-1","title":"Macrofossil analysis on a peat sequence reaching ~10 000 years BP in Store Mosse bog, south-central Sweden","summary":"Plant macrofossils were analysed from an ombrotrophic peat bog (Store Mosse bog) located in south-central Sweden, using a 678 cm long peat sequence which was collected in November 2018 (using a Russian corer) that reaches almost 10 000 cal years BP in basal age.\r\n\r\nThe peat sequence is based on 9 consecutive peat cores (of 1 m each) obtained from two alternating holes in the southern part of Store Mosse bog which were subsampled into 1 cm slices and then stored in a cold room before analysis. The dataset contains two types of data based on this composite peat sequence: (1) Age and peat properties (peat bulk density analysis, peat accumulation rates, and an age model based on 16 radiocarbon dates), and (2) Macrofossil analysis (119 samples, ~5 cm resolution).\r\n\r\nThe dataset provides insight into past peatland vegetation succession and peatland development in a previously glaciated area, spanning almost the entire Holocene. The data provides information about species composition throughout the peatland development.","citations":"Ryberg EE, V\u00e4liranta M, Mart\u00ednez-Cortizas A, Ehrl\u00e9n J, Sj\u00f6str\u00f6m JK, Kylander M (2022) Postglacial peatland vegetation succession in Store Mosse bog, south\u2010central Sweden: An exploration of factors driving species change.
