Exploitation, technology and function of plant resins in Oceania: molecular analysis of ethnographic museum artefacts and the implications for archaeological resin analysis

Abstract:

Oceania has an extremely diverse and unique flora that includes many endemic species of restricted geographic range. This flora comprises coniferous, deciduous, and monocot plants and trees that include many resin-producing species. Plant resins have a long ethnobotanical history in Indigenous Oceania, as is recognised by some rare archaeological finds as well as a rich ethnographic record.
