Handbook of Holocene Palaeoecology and Palaeohydrology

Wiley, Mar 26, 1986 - Science - 869 pages
This handbook reviews the key palaeoecological methods applied to primarily organic lake and mire deposits. Particular attention is paid to Holocene environmental changes in the temperate zone, but most methods can be applied to older Quaternary deposits and to areas outside the temperate zone. The need for uniform methods of correlating stratigraphical data on a continental scale is emphasized.
