Desiccated seeds were used in order to evaluate qualitatively and quantitatively the weed vegetation present in traditional Central-European agricultural landscape of the second half of the 19th century. More than seven thousand seeds were excavated from 100 kg of loam, chaff and straw that had been used as building material of cob cottages in NE Slovenia. About 7100 of these were wild plants, while only 126 belonged to cultivated/escaped species (cereals excluded). The diaspores belonged to 89… Expand
