dc.description.abstract Permian and Triassic deposits in Zambia have been sporadically researched since the beginning of the 20th century, but there have not been many detailed works on the palaeobotany and palynology of these Karoo-aged rocks. Studies that have been published, suffered from a lack of inter-basinal correlation, which was also hampered by differing stratigraphic subdivisions. We review previous records of palynomorphs, megafloral remains and fossil wood in Zambian Permo-Triassic deposits, present a synthesis of micro- and macrofossil occurrences throughout the country, and propose a standardised subdivision for the Luangwa Valley. This will aid in future correlations between different Karoo basins and act as a framework for future palaeobotanical research in both Zambia and Gondwana. en_ZA
