Abstract


This paper reports results of work at the Cevico Navero site in Palencia, Spain. Macro- and microscopic study of the subfossil cones and trunks found at the site has permitted their identification to the species Pinus nigra. Radiocarbon dating of the wood indicates that this pine species was present in the región 3,500 years ago. The results are discussed in the context of other relevant literature. The dynamics of vegetation cover in the study área and the paleochorology of P. nigra are considered.
