Abstract:
The research unit Palaeontology of Ghent University was founded in 1960. The group studies the biogeography, biostratigraphy, palaeoecology and evolution of a broad range of fossil organisms such as Neogene and Quaternary dinoflagellate cysts, Lower Paleozoic Chitinozoa, Neogene freshwater molluscs and Paleogene mammals. Besides these fossil organisms, Neogene and Quaternary pollen are studied. In addition, the group focuses on structural geology, stratigraphy and geological mapping (of Brabant Massif and Condroz-inlier), as well as on prehistoric settlements and land use systems in sandy North Flanders.

Two marine research topics can be distinguished within this research group. The first topic concerns the global and regional biostratigraphy of Ordovician and Silurian rocks using Chitinozoa (marine microfossils), as well as using Chitinozoa as a tool for the stratigraphy and geological mapping of the Lower Paleozoic Brabant Massif and Condroz-inlier (Belgium). The second research topic deals with the study of organic-walled phytoplankton and pollen in Neogene and Quaternary marine deposits of the North Sea Basin, the Atlantic and Pacific Ocean. A distinction can be made between:
- Biostratigraphical studies using Neogene dinoflagellate cysts;
- Palaeoecology of Neogene and Quaternary dinoflagellate cysts;
- The use of dinoflagellate cysts as a proxy for palaeoenvironmental changes;
- The development and validation of climate proxies based on Neogene and Quaternary dinoflagellate cysts;
- The use of pollen as a proxy for vegetation and palaeoenvironmental reconstructions.

In the future, the group will further focus on the palaeoecology of Phanerozoic marine environments using integrated palynological and biogeochemical research.
