Abstract:
Fossil woods studies found in different Tertiary localities from King George Island. The principal discovery was found in the Fildes Peninsula ("Fossil Hill"), Sufiel Point and the surrounding of Collins Glacier. Also the leave fossil impressions and palynological studies were found at the same localities. The paleobotany studies have been able to proof the ages of the sediments proposed by the geological studies. Only 50% of the material collected have been already studied.

Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
The wood samples had the following analysis: thin sections for the petrographycal analysis, scanning electrom microscopy and optical microscopy analysis. The fossil impression leaves were studies by the comparative studies with present time leaves. The palynological samples were prepared by physical and chemical analysis.
