Pollen analysis reveals landscape change

pictureYasmin Ehlers currently researches in her Diploma thesis landscape change and woodland use in the region of Bargstedt. She uses several cores of a ombrotrophic mire to analyse the contained pollen, and to combine palynological and anthracological data to bring forward scenarios of woodland composition and change for the last 1000 years on a local scale.
