Meadows, M. (2014) ‘Recent methodological advances in Quaternary palaeoecological proxies’, Progress in Physical Geography, 38 (6): 807–17.

This progress report provides a detailed account of many new materials and methods that contribute to reconstructing past environments and generally require some level of laboratory analysis to extract paleoecologic data.

Lowe, D. (2008) ‘Globalization of tephrochronology: New views from Australasia’, Progress in Physical Geography, 32 (3): 311–35.

Tephrochronology is an important sedimentalogical dating technique widely used in paleoecology and this article describes recent advances in laboratory methods and provides examples of how this tool has been used.

Furley, P. (2010) ‘Tropical savannas: Biomass, plant ecology, and the role of fire and soil on vegetation’, Progress in Physical Geography, 34 (4): 563–85.

This progress report details some of the soil chemical properties used around the world to help explain controls on vegetation type, distribution, and management that require some knowledge of laboratory analytic methods to collect soils data.
