Dolores Archaeological Program Technical Reports, DAP-047: Botanical Studies - 1979

Author(s): Robert A. Bye

Year: 1982


During 1979, the Environmental Studies Group of the Dolores Archaeological Program developed a research design which emphasized the development and testing of specific vegetation models based on archaeological and modern botanical data. In order to provide a valid basis for such model building and testing, and to provide a basis for comparison between modern and prehistoric vegetation patterns, a reconnaissance survey of the project area, in part using the releve technique, was undertaken. Data recovered through this effort was combined with ethnobotanic information to produce a list of plants, their associated vegetation zones, and their possible uses, to aid in interpreting the paleobotanical remains from archaeological contexts.

Originally the information in this record was migrated into tDAR from the National Archaeological Database Reports Module (NADB-R) and updated. In 2015, as part of its effort to improve tDAR content, the Center for Digital Antiquity uploaded a copy of the document and further improved the record metadata.
