Specialist environmental services include pollen, plant macrofossil, and charcoal analysis; chironomid analysis; environmental magnetism; and terrestrial, fluvial, and limnic sedimentology and stratigraphy. UK partners include agencies such as English Heritage and the Countryside Council for Wales, Local Authorities, and Natural England, and we work worldwide with a range of collaborators.
