I would like to announce the launch of a new web site, "PalaeoWorks", that
is designed to be a portal to key resources being developed to facilitate
palaeo- and archaeobotanical research in the Asia-Pacific region. Please
take the time to visit the web site. Comments and contributions welcome...
PalaeoWorks home page http://palaeoworks.anu.edu.au/index.html
* Information for <http://palaeoworks.anu.edu.au/students.html>students
interested in studying palaeoecology and archaeobotany in the Department of
Archaeology and Natural History at the ANU.
* The <http://palaeoworks.anu.edu.au/databases.html>INDO-PACIFIC POLLEN
DATABASE contains information on over 600 pollen sites from a region
extending from the Indian to the Pacific Ocean. The database and is
available as a FileMaker Pro 5 file and a bibliography of 645 references is
also available as a PDF file.
POLLEN AND SPORE ATLAS is a pollen image database under development at ANH
that will provide web access to the pollen and spore collection held in the
department. A draft version of the database is accessible through this site.
* Publications include online
"<http://palaeoworks.anu.edu.au/publications.html>Technical Reports" that
are intended to support palaeoecological and archaeobotanical research in
the Asia-Pacific and Australian region. (e.g. Macphail, M. and Hope, G.S.
2003. Natural Histories: An illustrated guide to fossil pollen and spores
preserved in swamps and mires of the Southern Highlands, NSW. PalaeoWorks
Technical Report 1. p.25 + 134 pollen and spore taxa as colour images).
* Individual collections of pollen floras from sites investigated by
members of PalaeoWorks are being developed and will be freely available.
(e.g. A <http://palaeoworks.anu.edu.au/pollenbook1.pdf>New Caledonia Pollen
Flora contains around 360 pollen and spore images from the flora of New
* Up-to-date information on the groups current
* Price list for
