Abstract

Baltic amber forms the largest amber deposit on earth and it is particularly well-known for the plethora of arthropod inclusions. The floristic composition, habitat types and climate of its Eocene source area, however, are still controversial. The differing suggestions range from early Eocene tropical to late Eocene temperate environments, and from lowland to montane forests. We screened a large number of inclusions from historic collections and from recently discovered amber pieces and found many inclusions of seed plants, lichens and microfungi that provide important insights into habitat structure and climate.
