A glimpse into the Carnian: Late Triassic plant fossils from Hopen, Svalbard
Swedish Museum of Natural History, Department of Paleobiology.

Abstract [en]

A small number of well-preserved plant fossils have been collected during recent fieldwork on Hopen in the Svalbard archipelago. The assemblage shows a composition typical of Carnian floras from central Europe and complements a recent study of old collections of Upper Triassic plant fossils from Svalbard. The new findings include already described species and some possibly new for Svalbard. The plant fossils are from well-dated Carnian beds on Hopen and confirm the earlier assumed Carnian age for plants collected on Svalbard from Upper Triassic sediments. A remarkable feature of this flora is the high number of plants, which are also described from Carnian floras from Austria and Switzerland, but also recorded from Franz Josef Land and other Arctic areas. The stratigraphic value of this flora is discussed.
