This session focuses on all aspects of palaeobotany in order to resolve various geological problems in continental and transitional depositional environments. The use of latest knowledge on fossil plants, including the use of macroflora remains, palynology and charophytes among others, will help on a more integrated approach related to facies determinations, age dating and selection of guide fossil species, their geographical distribution and also detecting past climatic changes.
