However, evidence from dendrochronological and radiocarbon studies of Celery Top Pine Phyllocladus
aspleniifolius, a long-lived conifer associated with E.
At approximately 750-550 years BP, the time of environmental impact during Maori settlement (McGlone and Wilmshurst 1999), post-glacial Phyllocladus
and Halocarpus scrubland was burned to leave dominantly tall tussocks of the genus Chionochloa in the high country of Mackenzie Basin, South Island, New Zealand (Treskonova 1991; McGlone and Moar 1998; McGlone 2001).
To facilitate inter-site comparisons only pollen taxa common to all sites were selected for the analysis, including Nothofagus, Castanopsis/Lithocarpus, Phyllocladus
, Myrtaceae, Macaranga, Trema, Dodonaea, Casuarina, and Gramineae.
The phylogenetic positions of the conifer genera Amentotaxus, Phyllocladus
, and Nageia inferred from 18S ribosomal-RNA sequences.
the cone is very simple and borne on the margin of the basal segments of the phylloclade (Fig.
At the upper limit of this layer (from 8,900-9,800 ft to 9,800-10,800 ft [2,700-3,000 to 3,000-3,300 m]), depending on exposure) there is another type of cloud forest dominated by species of Phyllocladus
(Phyllocladaceae, a small family related to the Podocarpaceae) and species of Xanthomyrtus (Myrtaceae).
