Taxonomy of Neogene palynomorphs
Coordination: Dimiter Ivanov
As one of the first results of this working group, the list of Nearest Living Relatives has been updated.
The new additions mainly refer to taxa described in "Atlas of Pollen and Spores of the Polish Neogene" Vol. 1-3 by Stuchlik et al. (Eds.) and their interpretation in terms of NLRs.
10th workshop of the working group on"Taxonomy of Neogene palynomorphs", Weimar, 17th-20th, June, 2019
This workshop of the NECLIME working group on "Taxonomy of Neogene Palynomorphs" is going to take place in Weimar, Germany, from June 17th to 20th, 2019 at the Senckenberg Research station of Quaternary Palaeontology. The primary scientific focus will be on the vegetation evolution in Central and Eastern Europe and further include topics on

- methods and ways/possibilities of the integration of the macro- and micropalaeobotanical records
(e.g., taxa complexes)
The 1st circular contains more details on the proposed topics, information in the preliminary schedule and information on the cultural history of Weimar.
