The fields of palaeoecology, ethnobotany, ecohistory, and archaeology are repositories of knowledge on the environments of both the near and distant past. Research in these fields shows us how landscapes have changed since the last major glaciation, and how humans used and shaped the changing environment. This workshop was an attempt to bring together this interdisciplinary body of information to help us understand and resolve current resource management issues.
