Palynological research

Palynological research will focus on studies of Late glacial and Holocene palaeoenvironment and human impact on the vegetation at Ljubljansko barje, Blejski kot and Bela krajina regions of Slovenia. Research will include pollen analysis of sedimentary sequences, collected at palaeoecological and archaeological sites and regular monitoring of pollen rain in all study areas.

A book addressing the main theoretical and methodological issues of palaeobotanical and archaeozoological research, including numerous case studies, will be published. This multidisciplinary handbook of palaeoecology could also be used for teaching archaeology and biology.
