Le Gué du Plantin: étude paléo-écologique d'un site humide (Neufvilles, Provinces du Hainaut, Belgique)

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The macrofossil analysis of mineral and humiferous sediments from Neufvilles allowed a precise identification of the communities suspected by the palynologist. Sixteen ecological groups were formed from the subfossil pollen and macrofossil assemblages. Thus, it was possible to reconstitute the succession of different biotopes within the identified communitites. In this way, ten ecological groups were recognized within a Stellario-Alnetum of Atlantic age. From the samples of the Middle Ages, nine groups were formed. They correspond to various biotopes as still water, reed swamp, rich muds, wet meadows and cereal cultivations.
