James Schoenwetter Pollen Research Papers


James Schoenwetter (Ph.D. Southern Illinois 1967) was a Professor Emeritus at Arizona State University. His research interests included prehistoric cultural ecology, applications of pollen analysis in archaeology and research methodology. Before his retirement in 2000 he directed the ASU Anthropology Department’s palynology lab. Pollen research by Schoenwetter and his students involved a variety of sites in Mesoamerica, North America and Europe. He directed archaeological and botanical fieldwork in the Midwestern and Southwestern United States, California, Oaxaca, Zacatecas, Jalisco, England and France. Dr. Schoenwetter described this document collection as follows: "This collection of my unpublished professional writings has not been edited or changed from the form in which they were written between 1958 and 2004. Hopefully, the palynological and archaeological information they contain, and the concepts and methods presented in this collection of documents, will prove useful to others researching similar problems and situations. Readers should be warned, however, that these writings have not been subject to professional peer review. Therefore, they should not be recognized as contributions to proper scientific literature."
