Quantitative taphonomic analyses of recent fruit and seed assemblages (carpological assemblages or carpodeposits) are essential to allow for more accurate interpretation of fossil carpodeposits. To this end, extensive taphonomic analyses were undertaken in two modern, small, fluvial catchment basins (Ca' Viettone and Valtorta-Rivara) in northwester...
aBSTRaCT - Palaeobotanical applications of the carpological analysis of modern soils and fluvial deposits of the Piedmont region, with a focus on Cyperaceae -.We report some recent investigations on fruit and seed assemblages, carried out on soils and modern fluvial sediments of the Piedmont region (nW italy) with the aim to assess their relationsh...
A palaeobotanical study, including pollen and carpological analyses, has been carried out on the brown coal seam of San Pietro di Ragogna (Friulian foothills). The palynoflora and carpoflora have been analysed with the Plant Community Scenario approach for a better interpretation of their palaeovegetational signals. The coal-bearing layer, despite...
CENOFITA 1.2 is a database containing published and unpublished information about 70 late Cenozoic Italian sites with plant macrofossils (taxonomy, stratigraphy, geography, qualitative and quantitative carpological data, plant ecology and habitus, literature citations). It provides a supporting tool for an easy retrieval of palaeofloristic data, al...
Mummified foliage, seeds and cones of Glyptostrobus europaeus (Brongniart) Unger (Taxodiaceae, or Cupressaceae s. l.) are very common within muddy sediments embedding large arboreal stumps in several Pliocene localities of northern and central Italy. Recent investigations in one of these fossil forests, which crops out 20 km North of Turin (NW Ital...
