Macropaleoecology & databases

Map database

Large high-quality pollen databases are essential for answering many large-scale palaeoecological questions. I contributed as a member of the MADCAP group with "awakening" the European Pollen Database (EPD), enhancing data accuracy and encouraging people to contribute their data. We also run a parallel project of the Czech Quaternary Pollen Database (PALYCZ). Since the EPD decided to move under the umbrella of the Neotoma database, I helped with this migration and continue curating data as one of the data stewards.
