Abstract

The palaeobotanical collection of the NI Museum of Natural History of RN Macedonia in Skopje is presented. It contains 159 specimens, representing mainly leaf imprints of angiosperms and leafy twigs of gymnosperms. The taxa found in the collection are 60. The fossil material was collected by Spasa Stojanovič from four localities in RN Macedonia. According to previous information, the age of the deposits, that of Sudik is late Eocene, and of the other three - Oslomej, Suvodol and Vitolište is late Neogene. The difference in the taxonomic and quantitative composition of the Palaeogene flora and those of the late Neogene flora shows the evolution of the flora and vegetation during the Neogene on the territory of RN Macedonia.
