Acquisition of ecophysiologically relevant morphometric data of fossil leaves

Database Synopsis

This synopsis shows a compilation of stored data in MORPHYLL with regard to fossil localities their number of fossil leaf entities (see menu "How to search"), stratigraphic position and institutions hosting the collections. The data are ordered according to descending stratigraphic age. Please note that in order to generate leaf morphometric data only angiosperm leaves which are not highly fragmented are incorporated in the database. Thus, the real number of specimen in the collections might be higher than listed here.
