Some Comments on Present and Future Contributions of Paleoethnobotany in the Neotropics
Author(s): Dolores Piperno
Paleoethnobotanical research the past two decades from around the world makes it clear that multi-proxy data including from genetic and paleoecological approaches are necessary for understanding plant exploitation, domestication, and spread of agriculture. Recently, bio-archaeologists using such kinds of multidisciplinary endeavors have come to understand that addressing prehistory is also relevant to understanding species adaptation and survival in future environments. This paper discusses these issues and highlights some potentially productive areas of future Neotropical research.
