In this session, we intend to assess the role of palynology (pollen, spores, dinocysts and other NPPs) as an important field of geological, stratigraphical, environmental and climate research during the Cenozoic. Participants are invited to present methodological, biodiversity, human/faunal and human/ environment approaches, and significant and /or multiproxy records in the frame of paleoenvironmental and palaeoclimatic past reconstructions.  

 Subjects based on high-resolution analyses, climate change, connectivity and biodiversity conservation are also welcome. We would like to encourage contributions in order to promote the exchange of knowledge, especially the virtual meeting among researchers and students from different parts of the world.
