Previous work at Minim Island has suggested considerable species diversity, typical of a maritime forest community. While the current study does not match or expand on this diversity, the dominant woods remain oak and pine, and the absence of diversity may be attributed to the small column sample sizes. The limited presence of "weedy" seeds is suggestive of a disturbed habitat or ecotone and all of the seeds are presumed to be accidental inclusions in the archaeological record. While equivocal, their presence suggests a fall occupation.
