REW01 posted a topic in Fossil LiteratureI have some pollen grains, spores(?), and other non-pollen palynomorphs as well, which I would like to identify that I photographed from a number of slides. However, I have no eye for these things yet (if only my university offered palynology courses!) so I am in need of references to start reading and hopefully use to identify some stuff now and in the future. I know that it's a pretty specialized area, but any input could be helpful as references accessible to people who don't yet know how to identify these things seem to be few and far between. I have access to Paleopalynology by Alfred Traverse (2007) through my university. I was given Fossil Fungi by Thomas N. Taylor, Michael Krings, and Edith Taylor (2014) as a gift from a family member. It's a lovely book, and excellent reference for fungi. I have found little on pollen and other terrestrial microfossils aside from Traverse and Taylor that seems useful. Marine micro/nanofossils get a lot more attention, apparently. While I am a student with a good working knowledge, I still need stuff that's clear and not too technical, as I am mostly learning this on my own. Anyone have suggestions for other material I could make use of (both modern pollen/palynomorphs and fossils)?
