Author(s): William J. Litzinger

Year: 1982


The Environmental Studies crew supervised recovery of paleobotanical samples at seven sites in the Dolores Project area during the first field season. Work was begun on initial characterization of the project area environment and site catchment analysis. Identification of macrobotanical samples was undertaken and water separation of bulk soil samples was begun. Charred corn (Zea mays) fragments represent the major type of macrobotanical remains identified from these sites. Juniperus, Pinus, Yucca and Phaseolus have also been recorded. Appendix A presents a description of sampling techniques.
