"The Paleoflora Reconstruction of the Upper Cretaceous Deposits from the North Sudetic Basin Based on Biomarkers Characteristics" (2018/31/N/ST10/01646)

The main objective of the project is the reconstruction of the paleoflora inhabiting the lands surrounding the North Sudetic Basin during the Late Cretaceous. The detailed characterization of resin-derived biomarkers via gas chromatography - mass spectrometry will be used to achieve this goal. These analyses will lead to better understanding of conditions leading to preservation of certain resin compounds, previously thought to be unstable, during the geological time.
