Many of the dated samples reported by Scholl and Stuiver (1967) probably cannot be as closely related to past sea level as their small margins of error would suggest. More evidence of the true nature of the materials dated and the environments in which they accumulated must be provided. In the low-relief area of the Everglades and adjacent swamps, the materials used probably generally reflect the last phase of sea-level rise. More precise determinations seem necessary, however, before acceptance of the area as a standard of comparison for other coasts.
