Proposed merge with Environmental Archaeology
These are pretty much synonymous. Environmental archaeology is far more commonly used (46 million google hits. ~6400 for 'Archaeobiology) and has several inter-language links. However, this article has some decent content that should be kept. PatHadley (talk) 16:35, 31 January 2014 (UTC)
In my experience, Archaeobiology and Environmental Archaeology are two different field of research, with methods and subject of research that may partly overlap. They largely investigate palaeoenvironment or palaeoethnobotany/palaeoeconomy. But this does not mean that they may be considered as the 'same thing'.
