Abstract:Miospore distribution patterns suggest differences in some ecological requirements of their source plants. One of the major tree-fern miospores, Thymospora, shows a pattern different than some of the other tree-fern miospores, especially at Sahara where it rises to second in abundance in the top zone at 29%. Thymospora is less abundant (less than 16%) in the two most complete profiles from Old Ben, but at both localities shows less rapid changes in abundance than two other Psaronius miospores. Perhaps the tree fern that produced Thymospora occupied less disturbed sites.
