Panicum miliaceum L. (broomcorn millet) was an important cereal for Eurasian populations in prehistory. It was first domesticated in China and spread westwards into Central Asia and Europe later on. However, the domestication history and dispersal routes of this cereal are still not clear. The...
Pollen, charcoal and geochemical investigations were carried out on annually laminated sediments of Lake Żabińskie (54°07′54.5″N; 21°59′01.1″E) and the results were combined with historical and climate data to better understand the mechanism behind plant cover transformations. A millennium-long...
Knowledge about vegetation and fire history of the mountains of Northern Sicily is scanty. We analysed five sites to fill this gap and used terrestrial plant macrofossils to establish robust radiocarbon chronologies. Palynological records from Gorgo Tondo, Gorgo Lungo, Marcato Cixé, Urgo Pietra...
