Preliminary results of palynological studies of Upper Jurassic flora-bearing deposits from Wólka Bałtowska, NE margin of Góry Świętokrzyskie Mts, Poland

Przemysław GEDL, Jadwiga ZIAJA


Three sampies of flora-bearing limestone from Wólka Bałtowska were analysed for palynology. They yielded organic-walled dinoflagellate cysts (dinocysts) and sporomorphs, as well as rich phytoclast assemblages including large-size cuticle remains. Age-assessment of limestone from Wólka Bałtowska based on dinocysts implies Late Oxfordian to Early Kimmeridgian. Analysis of palynofacies content confirms near-shore, presumably shallow water sedimentary setting of the sediments in question. Surrounding land-masses were covered by vegetation representing various environments, from sea-shore setting to more inland one and those along the rivers.
