Abstract: Palynology is indispensable to Quaternary geological investigations. This paper discusses the palynological interpretation applied to the environments of deposition of some of the Holocene sediments in Peninsular Malaysia. The significance of palynology in delineating the Quaternary stratigraphy is stressed. A new unit for the Holocene, the Parit Buntar Member of the Gula Formation is introduced.
