Conveners of Symposium n° 39: MERCURI and SADORI; coordinator and organizations of the 12th IPC: THOMAS LITT.This symposium aims to strengthen the importance of parallel studies both on pollen and macroremains; the two data sets supply in fact a more complete picture of past green landscapes. The session will deal with archaeobotanical studies related to archaeological sites focusing on the evolution of the cultural landscape, and strengthening the importance of parallel studies both on microremains (mainly pollen, but also micro-charcoals, phytolits and diatoms), and macroremains (seeds/fruits, wood/charcoal, leaves) to obtain a more complete picture of past green landscapes. Studies from archaeological layers (on-site), and sediment cores (off-site) close to archaeological sites, recording human-related environmental changes are included. The proposed time period ranges from the Early to the Late Holocene, but key-contributions of different ages are welcome as well. Contributions are urged from all countries, searching for human behaviour similarities and dissimilarities in different environments. Archaeobotany strongly calls for the cooperative research of palynologists and palaeobotanists to enhance and enforce the potentialities of the two approaches. In fact, pollen, micro-charcoal, and other palynomorph records from the archaeological sites are an invaluable tool to follow the diachronical succession of events, and for studying the onset and evolution of cultural landscapes. Plant macroremains offer details on specific determinations and palaeoecological/ethnobotanical inferences. Besides being a useful local reference, they are fundamental in disentangling, at least on a regional scale, if environmental changes are human or climate induced. The palynology of archaeological sites offers detailed studies, which can be very useful in environmental archaeology, to assess the relevance of the human influence on different environments and the extension of land use.
