Actually Palaeoflora contains data entries for over 6,300 Cenozoic macro taxa and entries for over 2,900 pollen and spore taxa including information on Nearest Living Relatives, stratigraphical range and corresponding references.

For over 3,100 modern plant taxa data on plant ecology, dispersal biology, leaf physiognomy and distribution are available, for many of those also climate tolerances with respect to 16 different climate variables. Selected data are accessible in the Internet Version of Palaeoflora.


So far, the database project has been realized in the frame of several research projects on Cenozoic paleoclimate granted by the German Research Foundation whose support is gratefully aknowledged.
