Review:

"This is an extraordinarily heterogeneous volume of papers read to a research seminar in archaeology and related subjects held at the Institute of Archaeology of London University. . . . [I]t should be consulted by all those interested in the history of vegetation and land use."

--A. D. Q. Agnew, Journal of Ecology

"One theme of the merit of an ecological approach to archaeology runs through all the papers. This must be welcome to all ecologists. . . those interested in the inter-relationship between man and organisms would undoubtedly benefit from this work. . . . It is. . . a book to recommend to your librarian."

--M. D. Hooper, Journal of Applied Ecology

"The overall aspect of the book is pleasing: it is a handsome production quite in keeping with the standards that The Aldine Publishing Company has maintained. . . . I applaud the efforts of the editors and publishers in placing this interesting compilation on the market."

--Ellis L. Yochelson, Systematic Zoology

"This book will go far towards showing the historian his limitations in technical knowledge and towards showing the biologist his limitations in the field of historical methods."

--H. J. Hine, Man

"[T]his volume will remain an important signpost along the winding track towards an understanding of one of the most decisive, revolutionary episodes in man's long development."

--Robert McC. Adams, The Economic History Review

"This is an important group of papers concerning problems surrounding the study of the development of a controlled food supply."

--Robert H. Dyson, Jr., American Anthropologist

"This is the best compilation available on the many ways to study the domestication, use, and evolution of plants and animals. . . . It is a valuable reference work, but almost any chapter will make a casual reader view the diverse products in his supermarket with new interest."

--Hugh C. Cutler, American Scientist

"I would recommend the book to any one interested in the fields of paleobotany, paleozoology, and paleoanthropology for it contains a wealth of concrete information."

--James L. Phillips, Ecology

"This handsome volume of 51 short papers is the fruit of the Research Seminar in Archaeology and Related Subjects held on May 18 and 19, 1968, at the Institute of Archaeology, London University, to promote interdisciplinary contact between workers in archaeology, anthropology and biology."

--Francis D. Hole, The Quarterly Review of Biology
