Description: In northeastern North America our understandings of prehistoric humanplant relationships, the subject of paleoethnobotany, continue to change as more samples are taken, examined, and compared to extant records. The results of these analyses are no longer relegated to the appendices of archaeological site reports, but constitute important contributions to our understandings of Native American lifeways in the Northeast, on their own and in combination with other lines of evidence. This volume presents current work in this vital field of inquiry. Its chapters reflect how paloethnobotany in the Northeast is changing to include the analysis not only of macrobotanical, but also microbotanical, remains and new theoretical developments in our understandings of prehistoric human-plant relationships. Collectively, the chapters in this book provide a sense of the breadth of paleoethnobotanical research being carried out in the Northeast and serve as a benchmark by which progress in the field can be measured in the decades to come.
