Seminar: The hidden past of Tasmanian landscapes

The quantification of the effects of fire and climate change on terrestrial ecosystem depends on our ability to reconstruct past landscape changes. The semi-quantitative nature of Australian palynology has allowed objective inferences of landscape change from pollen data, yet we remain uninformed about the actual degree of alteration of past land-cover due to biases in […]
