INTRODUCTION

The pollen and spores atlas of the Polish Neogene volume 3Angiosperms (1) contains descriptions and photo documentation of the following groups of pollen: inaperturate, monoporate, diporate, triporate, zonoporate and pantoporate. The lay-out of this volume, morphological descriptions and illustrations of pollen were made in the same way as in the preceding volumes (Stuchlik ed. 2001, vol. 1 – Spores; 2002, vol. 2 – Gymnosperms).

This elaboration comprises palynofloras from 65 localities of Polish Neogene from various stratigraphical units (Fig. 1). Stratigraphical posision of palynological profiles is presented on the table (Tab. 1) including all Neogene stages. The table contains chronostratigraphic and lithostratigraphic scheme of the Paratethys area (Watycha 1977) and Polish Lowlands (Piwocki 1998). In the present study published materials as well as these, remaining in archives of the W. Szafer Institute of Botany Polish Academy of Sciences in Kraków, Polish Geological Institute, and Museum of the Earth Polish Academy of Sciences in Warszawa, and the Warsaw and Wrocław Universities have been taken into consideration. All described pollen taxa are illustrated on 67 plates with photo documentation of pollen grains made in the last 60 years, as well as newly prepared microphotographs especially using the Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM).
