In dieser Arbeit werden grundlegende Begrifflichkeiten und Arbeitsmethoden erläutert und die Auswertung von so genannten Pollenanalysen erarbeitet. Daher liegt der Schwerpunkt dieser Arbeit auf der Feuchtbodenerhaltung von Pollen in den Ablagerungen des Holozäns.
In der Fachliteratur werden heute verschiedene Begriffe synonym verwendet „Palynologie“, „Paleopalynology“ und „Pollenanalyse“. Dennoch variierten alle drei in ihrer ursprünglichen Bedeutung. Nach einer Definition von Hyde und Williams (1943 in Klaus, 1987) versteht guy unter dem Begriff Palynologie „[…] die Wissenschaft von der lebenden und fossilen Sporen- und Pollengeneration der Pflanzen in Grundlagenforschung und Anwendungsbereichen.“. Diese Definition ist weitestgehend anerkannt (Traverse, 2008; Moore & Webb, 1983; Straka, 1975; Faegri & Iversen, 1989; Koschik, 1999). Es zeigt sich aber, dass weitere Mikrofossilien wie beispielsweise Dinoflagellaten unter geeigneten Bedingungen ebenfalls erhalten bleiben. Daher wurde der Begriff „Paleopalynology“ geformt. guy versteht darunter„[…] the learn of natural microfossils which are present in our maceration arrangements of sedimentary rocks, i.e.“ (Traverse, 2008). „Pollenanalyse“ hingegen wurde ursprünglich auf die Betrachtung fossiler Pollen im geologischen Kontext bezogen (Faegri & Iversen, 1989) und später mit dem Begriff „Paleopalynology“ gleichgesetzt (Traverse, 2008). Mittlerweile werden alle drei Begriffe nahezu äquivalent verwendet (Moore & Webb, 1983; Faegri & Iversen, 1989).
