    Initial results, from pollen traps positioned on a small lake situated near to the margin of rain-forest in northeastern Queensland, are presented. These are compared with results derived by Tauber from a lake within an area of temperate mixed deciduous forest. It appears that, although pollen deposition from rain-forest vegetation is very low, it is of regional significance and dominated by pollen of top canopy species. Seasonal variations in the taxonomic composition of pollen deposition are evident with deposition being greatest at the end of the dry season.
