It provides a good level of detail so that the beginner in this area can appreciate what palaeolimnology can (and cannot) achieve. It goes beyond the simple introduction to provide a detailed understanding of how techniques can be applied ...This is a different take on the usual pollution text and would be of great use to those wishing to understand more from sedimentary records."
