Abstract

In the early stages of a previous study of fossil spores of Botryopteris globosa and B. americana from the Carboniferous (Phillips & Rosso, 1970), considerable difficulty was encountered in replicating and cleaning spore materials and associ- ated debris from the carbon-platinum spore replicas. After numerous attempts to clean these carbon films, the techniques presented in this paper proved ef- ficient and reliable for transmission electron microscope examination of Botry- opteris spores found in calcified coal ball fossils.
