(redirected from assemblages)
Also found in: Dictionary, Thesaurus, Encyclopedia.


The combination of two or more adjoining plots of real estate into a single plot. For example, a farmer may own 10 acres. If he buys the 25 acres next to him, he may combine the two plots so that they are from then on considered a single unit. Assemblage can increase the value of the real estate such that the new plot is worth more than the sum of its parts. This can have property tax implications.

To address one of the issues in MNI calculation--the subjectivity of completeness descriptors in initial inventory procedures--Knusel and Outram (2004) developed a standardized and replicable method to estimate MNI from human remains in bioarchaeological assemblages. Each skeletal element is divided into zones based on expected postmortem breakage patterns as observed in non-human archaeological exemplars.
This study represents the first contribution to compare the L and D benthic foraminiferal assemblages and the sediment quality in the Saquarema Lagoon System (SLS) using biogeochemical proxies, as well as to predict how coastal ecosystems are responding to the combined effects of eutrophication and pollution pressure.
Based on the observation of FI compositions and phases at room temperature (21 [degrees]C), as well as phase transitions during heating and cooling, there are four phase types of FIs which have been recognized in the Keyue deposit: (1) water FIs (W-type): the W-type FIs are the most common type in the Keyue deposit and are widespread in every oreforming assemblages, which accounts for more than 90% of the total amount.
