There are many internet resources available for those interested in plant microremains.
- The Foundation for Archaeobotanical Research in Microfossils - basic information including how to set up a lab, what kind of microscope to purchase, and protocols for isolating and identifying starch grains.
- The International Code for Starch Nomenclature - a list of terminology currently used for describing starch grain morphology.
- The FARM Boards - a bulletin board for discussing nomenclature, methods, unknown microremains, upcoming conferences, and all things related to microremain research.
- Phy-Talk - the mailing list of the Society for Phytolith Research.
- Archaeobotany - a mailing list predominantly for plant macro-remains, but also microremains.
- GRIN Taxonomy for Plants - The US Department of Agriculture's taxonomic ordering of over 46,000 plant species.
Several conferences focus on ancient use of plants
- Society for Economic Botany meetings
- International Working Group on Paleoethnobotany
- Society of Ethnobiology meetings
- Society for Phytolith Research (2011 conference page here)
