Aims and scope

Vegetation History and Archaeobotany publishes research papers, review articles and short contributions of high quality from Europe, the Americas and other parts of the world. It covers the entire field of vegetation history – mainly the development of flora and vegetation during the Holocene (but also from the Pleistocene), and including related subjects such as palaeoecology. Of special interest is the human impact upon the natural environment in prehistoric and medieval times; this is reflected in pollen diagrams as well as in plant macroremains from archaeological contexts.
