About this book

After the first part of the Atlas of the Pleistocene vascular plant macrofossils of Central and Eastern Europe (Velichkevich & Zastawniak 2006) covering pteridophytes and monocotyledons was completed, work was commenced on the second part of the Atlas dealing with the macroscopic remains (mainly fruits and seeds) of dicotyledonous herbaceous plants.

The selection of fossil fruits, seeds, leaves, and flowers for the second volume of the Atlas, excluding fruits of the genus Trapa L., was done by Felix Yu. Velichkevich. They originate from those localities of fossil floras in Central and Eastern Europe which had been studied by Felix Yu. Velichkevich. The information about occurrence of these species in Poland is based on materials stored in the Palaeobotanical Museum of the W. Szafer Institute of Botany, Polish Academy of Sciences, Cracow (KRAM-P) identified or revised by F. Yu. Velichkevich. He is the author of the descriptions and illustrations of taxa from the families Urticaceae to Rosaceae (except for some Ranunculus species and Dryas L.).

The work on the second volume was interrupted by the unexpected death of F. Yu. Velichkevich on August 1, 2006

In the second volume assigned to herbaceous plants are included the shrub Dryas octopetala L. and taxa from the Ericaceae. The fossil remains of other shrubs, trees and climbers known from the Pleistocene floras of Central and Eastern Europe were to be described in the planned third volume of the Atlas.

The layout of the second part of the Atlas mirrors that of the first, so that information contained in the General remarks refers also to this volume. The map of localities for the second part of the Atlas (see Illustrated fossil remains localities) includes the 137 localities of the Pleistocene floras of Poland and Eastern Europe from which the species described in the second volume of the Atlas originate. The list of localities provided at the end of the volume, data on their age and references refer only to the taxa described in this part of the Atlas.
