Question

Paleontological studies use fossil pollen because
A. Pollen retains viability for long periods of time unlike male gametes in animals
B. The intine of pollen is very hard and stable and can be used in rescuing plant populations on
a decline
C. The exine of pollen retains its structure for long periods of time
D. Soil pollen banks, unlike soil seed banks, stay dormant for long periods of time


Solution

C. The exine of pollen retains its structure for long periods of time

Palentology is the study of extinct species with the help of fossils.We can use pollens too here because the pollen has outer layer calle exine which is made up of sporopollenin which is the most resistant organic material so it is used as fossils.
