Much work has been done with the microfossils of Quaternary peat and silt deposits in Europe and North America, but comparatively little has been done with plant microfossils in older carbonaceous deposits, and, as far as the authors are aware, no statistical study has been made of these in coal deposits. The present study was undertaken in an effort to test in the Iowa coal the statistical methods used by paleoecologists upon Quaternary peat deposits.
