Visitors can discover scholarship opportunities and awards. The Biographies and Histories of Palynology link offers a growing collection of materials about many of the prominent scientists in the field of palynology, which is the branch of science concerned with the study of pollen, spores, and similar palynomorphs, living and fossil.
