Yannick MIRAS

I work in the CNRS and the French National Museum of Natural History in the laboratory named “Histoire Naturelle de l’Homme Préhistorique” (UMR 7194 / CNRS / MNHN). I’m palynologist and archaeobotanist. I’m interested in the analysis of pollen, spores, non-pollen palynomorphs and charcoals originating from different contexts: natural sequences (e.g. lakes, peat bogs, palaeochannels) and archaeological structures and artefacts. The specific objectives of my research are the study of the long-term vegetation evolution and land use histories (cultural landscape shaping), the past human-induced ecological disturbances (biodiversity, eutrophication)  and the socio-environmental interactions during the Pleistocene and the Holocene. I specifically work in the reconstruction of Prehistoric and Protohistoric environments and on the characterization of the use of wild and domesticated plant resources by past societies.
