Wood-remains of the Lower Pleistocene type locality of the Tiglian have been described and identified. The resulting flora is compared with Recent European forest-vegetations and a strong affinity with flood plain forests has been established. Also a comparison with flood plain forest vegetations of North America, East Asia and the Pontic area is made. The Tegelen wood-flora can at best be compared with the floras found in N. E. Asia and in the Pontic area. The climatic implications of this comparison and of the floristic composition of the Tegelen wood-flora are discussed.
