NECLIME working group on fossil wood
Coordination: Jakub Sakala, Olesya V. Bondarenko, Stanila Iamandei
The NECLIME working group on fossil wood was formed to discuss questions on taxonomy in the fossil record and on different paleoclimate reconstruction techniques based on fossil wood. Therefore this group discusses the application of light and scanning electron microscopy on fossil woods and the correct identification of modern living relatives. Physiognomic analyses of wood anatomy provide a basis for different methods of paleoclimate reconstructions on which the group reflects in constructive discussions to establish guidelines among the NECLIME members and beyond.
