This volume is the fourth in a series of occasional papers published by the Ontario Association of Professional Archaeologists, and it is Rudy Fecteau’s Masters thesis that was defended in 1985. Fecteau's original thesis focused on macrofossil remains from Indigenous sites, many of which came from late 19th and early 20th century sources. To this he added archaeobotanical information from reports which he had completed. Since that time there have been many developments which have greatly increased the amount of information available. Government guidelines and proliferation of Cultural Resource Management companies have contributed to this increase, particularly in Euro-Canadian sites. Recent developments in microfossil study techniques have also expanded understanding of previous plant use. Publication of Fecteau's thesis contributes to a baseline for further research regarding the introduction and spread of cultivated plants as well as the use of native plants in Ontario.
