Pollen morphology of 30 plant species collected from Salt Lake City area has been examined for the present study. Most of these species are new entrants in terms of plant succession after reclamation of saline swampy low land area of the present day greater Calcutta by dredged silt from Hooghly river. Pollen morphology shows a heterogeneous assemblage of morphoforms. Pollen dimorphism is also observed in some species. This study will be very much helpful in correlation of sedimentary samples of the area towards better understanding of past and present vegetation.

Abstract


Pollen morphology of 30 plant species collected from Salt Lake City area has been examined for the present study. Most of these species are new entrants in terms of plant succession after reclamation of saline swampy low land area of the present day greater Calcutta by dredged silt from Hooghly river. Pollen morphology shows a heterogeneous assemblage of morphoforms. Pollen dimorphism is also observed in some species. This study will be very much helpful in correlation of sedimentary samples of the area towards better understanding of past and present vegetation.
