Human Impact on Terrestrial Ecosystems, Pollen Calibration and Quantitative Reconstruction of Past Land-Cover

Eds: Gaillard M-J, Sugita S, Bunting J, Dearing J & Bittmann F

Vegetation History and Archaeobotany, vol. 17(5), 415-615, 2008

This special issue arose from the first joint HITE-POLLANDCAL conference, held 13-14 November 2005 in Umeå, Sweden. The conference focused on the human impact on terrestrial ecosystems on long- to short-term scales, with an emphasis on pollen calibration and quantitative reconstruction of past land-cover changes. HITE is a Working Group of PAGES Focus 4.
