Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
Excel workbook including raw count data (frequencies) and the quantitative values adjusted to number per gram of rock processed.
Data were gathered by counting palynomorphs previously strew-mounted on glass slides and viewed using a microscope. 200 specimens were counted in each slide; additional taxa were recorded as rare and denoted '+'. The samples were spiked with modern Lycopodium spores for quantitative analysis. The number of Lycopodium encountered during the 200 count was recorded and used to calculate the quantitative value.
