Holocene Isochrone Maps and Patterns of Tree-Spreading in the British Isles [link]Paper  abstract   bibtex   
Isochrone maps for Betula L., Corylus avellana L., Ulmus L., Pinus sylvestris L., Alnus glutinosa (L.) Gaertn., Tilia L., Fraxinus excelsior L. and Fagus sylvatica L. in the Holocene of the British Isles, constructed from 135 radiocarbon-dated pollen diagrams, provide a basis for studying the patterns of tree spread. They highlight the strongly individualistic behaviour of each taxon in its arrival areas, directions, timings, rates of spread, and attainment of broad-scale range limits. The biological processes that enable forest trees to spread at rates of 500 m yr-1 or more have implications for palaeoecological and palaeoclimatic reconstructions.
