Palynological Data for three Genres of Fagaceae Family in Elbasani Region, Albania


  • Admir Jance


The study is performed in Elbasani region. A lot of biological studies have been realized in this region during two last decades’ periods. Palynological data are reported in the present study, obtained in depositions of last XX centuries (last historic period of New Holocene, last Quaternary), from five representative stations of Elbasani, important and ancient town in the central Albania. This study provides some paleopalynological data about the dispersion of Castanea, Fagus and Quercus representatives of Betulaceae Family during Holocene period in the area where is situated Elbasani region. The aim of this paper is to present the correlation between the depth and dispersion of three genres on different periods of time. For this purpose we took about 16 sediment samples in each station, every 25 cm from the surface up to 4 m depth, through a dry drilling sonde, 110 mm and 130 mm diameter, during 2010. The age is determined based on the age of archeological objects nearby; the depth 4 m is considered to be about 2000 years. Palynological data for these genres were provided for the first time in the Albania’s palynological literature. Observations, counting and photos of palynomorphs it was carried on using light microscopes, magnification up to 1000x. According to the analyses of these samples we found out several interesting data that showed clearly the correlation between the depth and number of spores and pollens for these three genres.
