Palynology is the science that studies fossil palynomorphs which are organic-walled microfossils between 5 and 500 micrometres in size. These include pollen and spores and other particulate organic matter found in sedimentary rocks and sediments. Palynology can be applied in many fields of study including geology, botany, paleontology, archaeology and geography.
