Describes calibration techniques which make it possible to translate pollen spectra (relative or absolute) into quantitative estimates of plant taxon abundances. Covers the methodology of surface sample surveys, the empirical methods used to derive correction coefficients from surface pollen and quantitative vegetation data, and the reconstruction of past vegetation. -K.Clayton
