Department of Physical Geography, Stockholm University, Stockholm In a paper published in Geograï¬ska Annaler 81A(1): 63â74 Leif Kullman presents nine new 14C dates on wood found above the present tree limit. The site where the wood samples were found is located at a high elevation in Lapland, which makes the dates interesting. However, the paper includes a number of errors. In the introduction Kullman writes: âIn subarctic/subalpine Swedish Lapland and adjacent regions of northern Fennoscandia, scientiï¬c progress within the ï¬eld, particularly concerning the early Holocene, has been restricted by the lack of extensive and systematic megafossil surveys at sufï¬ciently high elevations. KarlÃ©n (1976) has published some radiocarbon datings of subfossil wood remains of Pinus sylvestris (Scots pine) from this arApproximate position of Kullmans oldest dates ea.â The KarlÃ©n paper from 1976 included more dates from Early Holocene than Kullman has presented and KarlÃ©n has discussed the subject in several papers published during the past decades (e.g. KarlÃ©n 1982, 1996, 1998). Kullman continuous: âMost of these [dates on pine], however, originate from relatively low elevations or below the current potential tree-limit of Pinus. Besides, the resultant dates are fairly young and, thus, they are of little relevance to elucidate
