Dryas

Dryas Part of the characteristic three-fold late-glacial sequence of climatic change and associated deposits following the last (Devensian) ice advance and prior to the onset of the markedly warmer conditions of the current (Flandrian) Interglacial. The type sequence was first described for Allerød in Denmark, and shows upper-and lower-clay deposits rich in remains of Dryas octopetala (mountain avens), and between them deposits of lake mud with remains of cool-temperate flora, e.g. tree birches. The colder Dryas phases mark times of cold, tundra-like conditions throughout what is now temperate Europe. The three-fold Dryas—Allerød—Dryas sequence forms Pollen Zones I, II, and III of the widely accepted late and post-glacial chronology of Europe. The basal, Older, Dryas deposit forms Zone I; the Allerød Zone II; and the Younger Dryas Zone III. In north-western Europe Pollen Zone I is subdivided into a, b, and c. Zone 1b represents a proposed Bølling Interstadial, with Zones 1a and 1c referred to as Oldest and Older Dryas respectively.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
