New archaeobotany series


Graduate School members Wiebke Kirleis and Welmoed Out have recently launched, together with their colleague René Cappers (University of Groningen), a new series focused on people-plant interactions. Advances in Archaeobotany has been initiated to provide a dedicated publication venue for research excellence in archaeobotany and related interdisciplinary work.

The first volume in this new series is now available: Reconstructing vegetation diversity in coastal landscapes, by Mans Schepers of the University of Groningen.

“Archaeobotany has become an indispensable component of archaeological investigation, providing a baseline for a holistic understanding of past societies and past environmental dynamics”, stated co-editor Wiebke Kirleis. “As a series specializing in the field of archaeobotany, Advances in Archaeobotany offers a centralized, easily recognizable publication venue for the growing research output of the world’s archaeobotanical community. Advances in Archaeobotany aims to foster connections in a field of research with highly diversified publication strategies and to increase archaeobotanists’ international visibility.”
