200 Years of Palaeobotany    12-19 September, 2020, Prague, Czech Republic

Field Trips

Lower Palaeozoic of the Barrandian area

Each day will left Prague in the morning and return in the evening. Two to three-day field-trips in the Cambrian to Devonian sediments south west of Prague will give an opportunity to visit new and classic localities, including the first GSSP of the Silurian-Devonian boundary. At all outcrops, collecting of fossils and sampling for microfossils will be possible.

Pennsylvanian plants of Western Bohemia

Two field trips can be organized. One visiting the area of the Permian of Chemnitz (Germany), second to the Late Carboniferous of Western Bohemia (Czech Republic). Old and new outcrops will be open for participants.

Tertiary of North Bohemia

Remnants of Eocene to Pliocene rocks are preserved in depressions and grabens, mainly along the Krušné hory piedmont. Besides fresh-water coal-bearing deposits, the products of volcanic centres occur in Western and Northern Bohemia, forming the eastern branch of the European Cenozoic Volcanic Alkaline Province. North Bohemian Most Basin will be visited with particular interest in the Tušimice open cast mine locality. Classical localities as Kučlín etc. will be also part of the field trip.
