Abstract: This dataset represents a part extracted from the database of the National Museum Prague. It was prepared by Jiří Kvaček with help of Olexandra Chernomorets. The dataset comprises all described unequivocal fossil members of the Ginkgoales (fossil plant remains which could be assigned to this group with certainty). It is based on reproductive structures assigned to Ginkgoales and their associated organs. Additionally, as a part of this dataset there are all unequivocal fossil species of the recent genus Ginkgo. Other fossil (morpho-) taxa (particularly leaves and wood) assigned to the Gingkoales with high degree of probability will be a part of another dataset, which is in state of preparation.
