It is the only journal in Central and Eastern Europe focused on all fields of palaeobotanical and palynological investigations and publishes original palaeobotanical, palaeoecological, palaeophytogeographical, palynological, and archaeobotanical papers in addition to monographs, comprehensive review and discussion articles and book reviews. The journal is open to contributors from all over the world.
It is published regularly with one volume per year each comprising two numbered parts, printed in June (No. 1) and in December (No. 2). The language of the journal is English.

David BattenWe are saddened by the recent death of Professor David J. Batten, former subject editor for Acta Palaeobotanica, the age of 76 following a fight with cancer. Having received his PhD from the University of Cambridge in 1969 for research on palynomorphs of the Lower Cretaceous British Wealden, David was experienced in industry (Robertson Research and BP), as well as academia, and was on the faculty at University of Aberdeen, and then University of Wales, Aberystwyth, and has maintained affiliation with the University of Manchester. David is known for his career-long work in Mesozoic palynology and palynofacies analysis, including important contributions to various palynological and paleobotanical topics, for example, including the Normapolles pollen group, Mesozoic and Cenozoic megaspores and the phytogeographic provinces in the Mesozoic and Cenozoic. His research included pollen, microspores, megaspores, chlorococcalean algae, freshwater dinoflagellates, macropaleontology, and palynofacies analyses. He supervised or co-supervised eight MSc students and 14 PhD students and authored more than 190 refereed publications. His awards included the T.M. Harris Medal of the Birbal Sahni Institute of Palaeobotany, India in 1998, the Jongmans Medal of the Royal Geological and Mining Society of the Netherlands in 2006, and the Medal for Scientific Excellence of AASP–The Palynological Society in 2018.
