Abstract

The present volume is edited by the organizers of the 9th European Palaeobotany and Palynology Congress in Padova, Italy (EPPC2014). Italy's palaeobotanical record is extensive. However, this heritage has largely been forgotten. More than 300 million years lie between the oldest plant fossils discovered in Italy and Quaternary plant remains found in archaeological excavations. Fossil floras throughout Italy are remarkable in that they show a surprising abundance and diversity over the millions of years. The Italian palaeobotanical heritage represents an important source of new information on the evolution of plants and the ecosystems in which they lived, but can also help in predicting future environmental scenarios.
