Archaeobotanical database CZAD

The Archaeobotanical Database of the Czech Republic provides access to archaeobotanical analyses and primary data on individual pieces of archaeobotanical research in the Czech Republic. Data input was performed from July 2009 to December 2011. Additional data is added on an ongoing basis.

CZAD provides access to data on individual archaeobotanical research projects in the Czech Republic (author of botanical identification, archaeological dating, location type, number of analyzed seeds/fruits, number of plant taxons found). A uniform system for the coding of plant taxons is a key prerequisite for the aggregation of data from various archaeobotanical facilities. Information on the archaeological location and context of the sample studied is sorted hierarchically (Research-Object-Sample). The database structure also contains information on environmental properties of the individual taxons (e.g., např. Ellenberg indicator values).
