AASP–The Palynological Society was established as the ‘American Association of Stratigraphic Palynologists (AASP)’ in 1967.
In 2008 it renamed itself ‘AASP-The Palynological Society’ to reflect its broader scope. 

Amongst numerous applications, palynology is used in forensics, honey analysis, palaeontology, climate research, and conservation management. It is very important for the energy industry and plays a crucial role in the energy transition (e.g. geothermal energy and carbon capture and storage).

The Palynological Society
 supports an inclusive and international community of palynologists. It publishes findings in the journal Palynology and encourages outreach to the general public. read more about our journal Palynology
