Biologic Degradation of Fossil Pollen Grains and Spores
Preview not available

Abstract

Degradation patterns in the walls of fossil pollen grains and spores are described. The smoothness and multiplicity of the wall perforations are indicative of biologic activity, assumed to be fungal in nature. Spore or pollen exines may be selectively attacked and removed from the microflora.
