The presence of palynomorphs in feces has been noted for samples
of Paleozoic to Recent age. Recently, particularly through the work
of Prof. Jose Carrión, these studies have been shown to provided
unique information on paleo-environments in addition to paleo-diet.
Other studies have shown the value of palynomorphs in tracing insect
migration and habitat preference. In the rock stratigraphic record,
palynomorphs in feces provide the earliest records of arthropod-plant
