Palynology is literally the "study of dust" (from Greek: παλύνω, translit. palunō, "strew, sprinkle" and -logy) or of "particles that are strewn".A classic palynologist analyses particulate samples collected from the air, from water, or from deposits including sediments of any age. The condition and identification of those particles, organic and inorganic, give the pa...
AASP – The Palynological society (AASP-TPS) was founded to promote the science of palynology for and in behalf of the public interest. It is a non-profit organization, to foster the spirit of scientific research among its members and others engaged in this field of science.
Palynology is the scientific study of pollen and spores, those virtually indestructible, microscopic, but easily identifiable plant parts found in archaeological sites and adjacent soils and water bodies.These tiny organic materials are most commonly used to identify past environmental climates (called paleoenvironmental reconstruction), and track changes in climate over a period of time ...
Palynology, the study of pollen grains, is one of the most effective tools we have to reconstruct past environment. Because exines, the hard outer shells of pollen grains, of different species are unique (illustrated at left) and can survive in favorable conditions for thousands of years, palynolgists can identify many plants that were present in the past.
Palynology deals with plant spores and pollen that are both ancient and modern and is a branch of paleobotany. It plays an important role in the investigation of ancient climates, particularly through studies of deposits formed during glacial and interglacial stages.
Palynology - the study of micro organic material such as spores, pollen, dinoflagellates and microfossils (1) - is a method employed by a range of disciplines all concerned with the environment.
