Two lake deposits reported in the Genoese Apennines at Vobbia and Senarega, dated respectively ca. 11200 e 4090±60 years BP, yield rich fossil records of terrestrial plants. This project focuses on the analysis of the carpological remains, which have significant potential for the reconstruction of palaeovegetation in similar contexts. The project involves the construction of "Plant Community Scenarios" for the two basins, thus obtaining an approximate picture of the vegetation at two crucial stages of the Holocene: respectively, at its beginning and at a time just prior to the expansion of agriculture in northern Italy. The work implies a thorough taxonomic research on the carpological findings, to be conducted by consulting the Modern Carpological Collection. Part of the material collected will also be prepared for museum exhibitions that make use of the "Plant Community Scenarios" to illustrate the ecological significance of the finds and to graphically display the palaeovegetation.
