Palynological data are reported in the present study, obtained in depositions of last XX centuries (last historic period of New Holocene, last Quaternary), from representative stations of Elbasani, important and ancient town in the central Albania. In this article for the first time is provided some paleopalynological data about the dispersion of Tiliaceae and Rutaceae families during Holocene period in the area where is situated Elbasan city. The aim of this paper is to present the correlation between the depth and dispersion of Tiliaceae and Rutaceae families on different periods of time. For this purpose we took some samples from various layers of soil, starting from the surface to four meters depth. Palynological data for these families are given for the first time in the Palynologic literature in our country. The data show a very interesting correlation between the depth and number of spores and pollens for these two families.
