AbstractThis paper presents a pollen-morphological study of Alangium, a genus mainly restricted to the tropics of the Old World, of which 18 of the 19 known species were studied. The pollen grains, studied with the use of a light microscope, a transmission electron microscope and a scanning electron microscope, were classified into 15 pollen types, to which a key is given. Comparison of fossil and recent grains produced some information about both the evolutionary trends in the characters of the pollen grains and the phytogeography of Alangium.
