Description :
This paper provides an overview of the methodology associated with subfossil chironomid analysis and presents examples of their use and application in geographical research. The AA. first present the details of chironomid biology and ecology that are relevant for biophysical geographers interested in using subfossil chironomids to reconstruct past environmental and aquatic ecosystem conditions. They will also touch on the classic use of modern chironomid collections for phylogenetic research by biogeographers.
