African Pollen Database

History
The African Pollen Database is a network of all scientists involved in African palynology, with the objective to provide a tool, independent of particular research programmes, for the study of biodiversity and global change. The APD came into existence in 1996 following a series of organizational workshops and meetings that first began in 1994.
The APD home page is maintained at Médias-France. This website includes a site inventory, meeting reports, and newsletters, in addition to descriptions of the history of the APD and its administrative structure.
