Glossary of Pollen and Spore Terminology
Edited by Peter Hoen
pollen identification keys and the terminology used by palynologists are quite
complicated and can be intimidating to beginners and non-specialists at first.
This pollen key, along with an introduction to the basics of Palynology, a
glossary and a list of references, was developed for the students of the
Institute of Plant Sciences of the University of Berne, Switzerland as an
introduction to palynology.
We hope to make Palynology, as well as the related topics of vegetation- and climate-history, more easily accessible to beginners and non-specialists.
So, have fun!
