This edition of the definitive work on doing paleoethnobotany follows the steady growth in the quantity and sophistication of paleoethnobotanical research. It features a rewritten chapters on phytolith analysis and a new chapter Integrating Biological Data. It also includes new technqiues, such as residue analysis, and new applciations of old indicators, such as starch grains. An expanded examination of pollen analysis, more examples of environmental reconstruction, and a better balance of international examples increase the versatility of this holistic view of palaeoethnobotany. 4
