The glossary of pollen and spore terminology was first presented to the international palynological community as the final outcome of the Working Group on Palynological Terminology at the 8th International Palynological Congress in Aix-en-Provence in 1992. It became widely accepted as reference guide for palynologists to assist in the preparation of accurate and consistent descriptions of their material. It also serves as a practical source of information for non-specialists who wish to… Expand

Figures from this paper

Pollen terminology. An illustrated handbook
TLDR
This illustrated handbook of pollen terminology is to provide a collection of the most useful and important terms in palynology and illustrate them by light and electron microscope micrographs, an updated and beautifully illustrated version of the web-accessible ‘Glossary of pollen and spore terminology’. Expand
Pollen morphology and systematics of Burseraceae
TLDR
The distribution of pollen characteristics throughout the Burseraceae is compared with previously published tribal and subtribal groupings, as well as with current ideas of generic relationships from molecular analyses, showing notable congruence of pollen data with molecular data. Expand
The John Williams Index of Palaeopalynology
TLDR
The comprehensive and cross-referenced nature of the JWIP means that researchers can readily identify key publications on, for example, specific palynomorph types over a particular interval in a prescribed area. Expand
Atlas of pollen and spores and their parent taxa of Mt Kilimanjaro and tropical East Africa
Abstract The accurate and consistent identification of fossil pollen is essential to allow robust inferences to be drawn with regard to past vegetation and climate change. Identifications are bestExpand
Primary identifications and palynological observations of Perilla in China
TLDR
The ornamentation pattern and size of pollen grains jointly provided evidence that it is appropriate for use in classifying the genus Perilla into five varieties of one species, supporting the view that Perilla and the other four related genera can be classified into one subtribe (Perillinae). Expand
Taxonomy and phytoecology of palynomorphs and non-pollen palynomorphs: a refined compendium from the West Africa Margin
Due to the high diversification and complex nature of low latitude tropical pollen research in palynology and palaeobotany, most researchers are often faced with difficulties in taxonomicExpand
Infrageneric variability of pollen morphology in Palaua (Malveae, Malvaceae) and the taxonomic utility of quantitative pollen characters
TLDR
Pollen morphology of all species of Palaua was examined to determine whether it provides additional data in support of the proposed infrageneric groups, and a possible link between reproductive resources and pollen size was considered. Expand
Pollen morphology of the family Polygalaceae (Fabales)
TLDR
An overview of pollen morphology from all genera in the family Polygalaceae is presented to assist systematic studies of the Fabales clade, and morphological similarities and differences broadly correspond with relationships suggested by recent molecular phylogenies. Expand
Pollen morphology and ultrastructure of Acalypha (Euphorbiaceae)
TLDR
Though pollen morphology is inconsistent with a phylogeny based on ITS and ndh F sequence data, it does provide support for subgenera Linostachys and Androcephala and several small clades in the molecular phylogeny. Expand
Pollen Morphology of Some Taxa of Thlaspi L. Sensu Lato (Brassicaceae) from Turkey, and Its Taxonomical Importance
TLDR
The pollen morphology of 22 Turkish taxa of the taxonomically complex genus Thlaspi L. sensu lato was studied and some of the pollen characters such as the sizes of pollen and colpus, ornamentation of exine, apocolpidium, and shape and diameter of amb are found to be significant morphological characters for taxonomic use.

Pollen morphology of the Euphorbiaceae with special reference to taxonomy
TLDR
The morphology of the pollen grains of the Stenolobeae is in agreement with the opinion of PAX, that any separation of these Australian genera is an artificial one. Expand
Recent trends in palynology
The term "palynology" was coined by Hyde and Williams 1 to cover all work with pollen grains and spores. The term is convenient and has been widely accepted, but it must not be taken to indicate thatExpand
Pollen et classification
Abstract Spheroid pollen grains are considered successiform when the number and the disposition of the apertures vary according to a geometrical succession: the colpi issued from the apx of a sameExpand
Keys for the classification of fossil spores and pollen
Three keys are presented for the classification of fossil spores and pollen on morphological bases. HE need for a system of classifying plant microfossils has been recognized for almost threeExpand
Structure and evolution of metareticulate pollen
TLDR
In a palynological study of the Amaranthaceae, a peculiar type of reticulate pollen was found that is characterized by the presence of a porate aperture in each of the meshes of the reticulum, and the term “metareticulate”; is proposed. Expand
The evolution of miospore polarity
TLDR
The evolutionary sequence from homospory through heterospory to the seed habit is reviewed in terms of the “small spore” (miospore) part of the life cycle, and the behavior of the pollen in living cycads shows an intermediate state between that of prepollen and the true pollen of the living conifers. Expand
AN INTERPRETATION OF THE HYDRODYNAMICS OF POLLEN
TLDR
The purpose of this brief paper is to offer an analysis of the hydrodynamic relationships of pollen and stigma in the interval immediately following pollen capture, and to draw attention to certain broad principles that seem to have applicability to a wide range of pollen types. Expand
Pollen morphology of the tribe Dorstenieae (Moraceae)
TLDR
The pollen types were recognized and classified in a scheme to show their relationships, based on eighteen evolutionary trends, and seven pollen types show the characteristic presence of aspides. Expand
Comparative Pollen Morphology of the Madagascan Genera of Myristicaceae (Mauloutchia, Brochoneura, and Haematodendron)
TLDR
Pollen of all three genera of Madagascan Myristicaceae is studied and the distinctness of the frequently united genera Mauloutchia and Brochoneura is confirmed, as well as that of the recently described new genus Haematodendron. Expand
Suggestions towards unification of descriptive terminology of Angiosperm pollen grains
In this paper a descriptive terminology for angiospermous pollen grains studied with a light microscope is discussed. The requirements for terms have been formulated. On account of these the existingExpand
