Permian palynostratigraphic schemes are used primarily to correlate coal- and hydrocarbon-bearing rocks within basins and between basins, sometimes at high levels of biostratigraphic resolution. Up to now, their main shortcoming has been the lack of correlation with schemes outside the basins, coalfields and hydrocarbon fields that they serve, and chiefly a lack of correlation with the international Permian scale. This is partly because of phytogeographical provinciality from the Guadalupian onwards, making correlation between regional palynostratigraphic schemes difficult. However, local high-resolution palynostratigraphic schemes for regions are now being linked either by assemblage-level quantitative taxonomic comparison or by the use of...
