The main directions of research:
  • Study of different groups of flora (spores and pollen, dinoflagellates, nanoplankton);
  • Dissection and correlation of sections and biostratigraphic zonation;
  • Reconstruction of the vegetation cover, paleoclimatic and paleoecological conditions;
  • Palynological studies of the crude oils and the type definition of dispersed organic matter and the degree of its catagenetic transformation in rocks;
  • Compilation of database and atlases of plant remains of the Meso-Cenozoic deposits of Azerbaijan.

The priority direction of researches of the Sector is the definition of the stratigraphic age of marine and continental deposits, the detection of the chronos- tratigraphic sequence of paleogeographic events on the base of the study of morphology, evolution of phylogeny of remains of fossil flora of the Meso-Cenozoic deposits of Azerbaijan.

The Sectors employees have been studied: spore-pollen complexes, biostratigraphy and paleogeography of the Maikop deposits (Oligocene-Lower Miocene) of Azerbaijan, Cretaceous deposits of the Lesser Caucasus, Holocene deposits of the Garabagh plain.
