A late medieval clearing at the edge of the Dinkel valley (Eastern Netherlands)
Acta botanica neerlandica , Volume 32 - Issue 4 p. 313- 321
A late medieval clearing of Alnus forest at the edge of the Dinkel valley and at the foot of the Ootmarsum hill (Twente, Eastern Netherlands) is revealed from pollen analysis of peat developed near a source of a vanished brooklet. The clearing later developed from a wet sedge-meadow to a pasture. Details on the medieval forest history are also discussed.
