My name is Florin Pendea and I am a researcher at Lakehead University in Canada. I am currently working on a paleoecological study from the Far East and I have come across a stomata on one of my pollen slides and I was wondering if you could help me identify it based on your extensive expertise on this topic.
The sediment is 30,000 years old and the presence of stomata is quite rare for this time period. My knowledge on stomata is limited but I suspect it could be from Alnus based on the presence of papillae on the guard cells. Would it be possible for you to take a look at the photos attached and tell me what you think?
I would very much appreciate it.
