Abstract

Fossil pollen was recovered at Tahoe City, Calif., from beneath a 1.9-m.y.-old volcanic flow. Pollen counts of four fossil samples are compared with soil-surface pollen samples from the Sierra Nevada. The presence of Picea (spruce) pollen in the fossil samples suggests that summer drought conditions in the central Sierra Nevada were less severe prior to 1.9 m.y. ago than they are now.
