30th Meeting of Japanese Association of Historical Botany

On November 7th (Sat) and 8th (Sun), I attended the 30th Meeting of Japanese Association of Historical Botany (URL: only in Japanese) in the Hokkaido Museum, and presented my results.

On 7th (Sat), the symposium "Culture in Hokkaido from vegetation history: From Jomon to Ainu" were held, and a keynote lecture by Dr. Goro Yamada and other presentations overviewing historical botany and archaeology in Hokkaido were conducted. In my current research (URL: only in Japanese), my field is the Jomon period in northern Japan, and so these presentations were very helpful.


On 8th (Sun), general presentations were conducted. In the morning, I served as a chair of oral presentations. In the afternoon, during a poster session, I presented a poster as my intermediate report of the 1st survey in the project of the Integrated Studies of Rice-based Civilizations (URL: English version is under constructed).

I got many questions and advices in terms of my research perspectives by many researchers. Based on these, I will conduct the next survey.
