Abstract

<jats:title>Abstract</jats:title><jats:p>This chapter synthesizes the most common processing techniques applied to palynomorphs and their known issues. We primarily focus on non-pollen palynomorphs (NPPs), but include studies on pollen grains where the information might be relevant. An overview of recent (2017–19) NPP publications is used to connect the most common techniques to known taphonomic issues. Finally, general recommendations are made to minimize processing bias and maximize NPP recovery.</jats:p>
