Description :
The AA. present a revised interpretation of pollen analyses at Iron Age archaeological sites on the floodplain of the Mun River. They present a vegetation history of the study area that is confined to the details of land use and human impact during the latter half of the Thai Iron Age. They also identify ecological groups and landscape partitioning patterns during that period. In particular, they record phases of human impact, with periods of forest clearance and its replacement by grasslands with likely rice cultivation and arboriculture.
