A history of palynology[ edit ] Pollen core sampling, Fort Bragg, North Carolina Early history[ edit ] The earliest reported observations of pollen under a microscope are likely to have been in the s by the English botanist Nehemiah Grew who described pollen and the stamen, and concluded that pollen is required for sexual reproduction in flowering plants.
November 3, at 3: In general, I was disappointed with both the scope of the work and many of the conclusions. I do agree with her conclusion that many of the petroglyphs there, especially those in the vicinity of False Narrows, were likely made by the occupants of the False Narrows village site excavated by Burley Regarding the shortcomings of the thesis, my main criticism is that all the rock art is not presented, and the reader cannot refer to the data to confirm or disprove her conclusions.
I also feel that the thesis would have been much stronger if she has taken the time to Thesis on palynology data from other Nanaimo area rock art sites, which I believe shed a great deal of light on the patterns of rock art on Gabriola.
Unfortunately, there also exists the problem of the attitudes of many Nanaimo Elders who evidently feel it improper to document the rock art images and publish these images in a scientific paper.
This limitation however, could have been largely overcome by utilizing excellent data already published by Mary and Ted Bentley in their book Gabriola: Regarding specific problems with the text, I will mention a few examples: Adams states that anthropomorphic figures are always rendered frontally, ignoring the two face profiles illustrated by her in figure A10, also that the nearby petroglyph on Protection Island is not similar to Gabriola Island petroglyphs I believe there are some similar petroglyphs on Gabriola Island, but here we have the problem of her lack of illustrationsand ignores the clear stylistic similarities of a fish tailed zoomorph profile with historic grave markers from the lower Fraser River.
These specific points might have been caught and addressed if the thesis had included a thorough inventory of petroglyph images, enabling a more rigorous analysis of both style and content. I do not like to be so negative, but I have spent a number of years visiting these and other Coast Salish rock art sites with Beth Hill, Richard McClure and other archaeologists and as well have documented a great deal of Salish Rock art.
It presents us with many tantalizing clues regarding its origins and meanings, but a deeper understanding of this scientific and cultural treasure will not yield up its secrets easily. A rigorous analysis of all the available data should be the first step.A call for palynology PhD student, deadline on the basis of submitted disposition of doctoral thesis, his/her research inte rests and basic education*.
