Miscellaneous Plant Remains
Five of the plant identifications from Emanuel Point are probably intrusive into the site, having washed in from adjacent coastal areas. These remains are few in number, have no value as food items, and occur throughout the Gulf Coastal Plain biogeographic region (Newsom 1995:4). Botanical specimens in this group include fragments of bark (cf. Pinus sp., pine), seeds from two native trees (southern magnolia [Magnolia grandiflora] and swamp tupelo [Nyssa aquatica or N. ogeche], probably also the aborted acorn mentioned above, several small twigs, and two leaves (maple [cf. Acer rubrum [red maple] and oak cf. Quercus sp.]).
