Title information

This classic summary of the state of the art in the application of palynology is a classic as it described the role of palynology as it was practically applied in the exploration for oil. It was essentially comparable to that of any other branch of paleontology. Advantages and limitations of spores, pollen, algae, miscellaneous protistans of uncertain or known affinity and other similar sized microfossils utilized in palynology as stratigraphic and paleoecologic indicators arc briefly reviewed The economic value of this relatively modern scientific field to the petroleum industry may be increased and hastened by avoiding some of the pitfalls which plagued micropaleontology in its earlier years of application. Information should be developed simultaneously on the biology, ecology and stratigraphy of these organisms.
