The 'Fern Ledges' site is known mostly for its plant and invertebrate assemblages (Dunlop and Miller 2007; Falcon-Lang and Miller 2007a), and for a late nineteenth to early twentieth century controversy concerning the age of the rocks (Falcon-Lang and Miller 2007b), which was ultimately resolved by Marie Stopes in her classic palaeobotanical memoir on the Upper Carboniferous plants of the site (Stopes 1914).

Results of the palaeobotanical study at the Solova site reflect traces of the first vegetation succession and postglacial tree limit dynamics in Estonia after the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM), giving therefore valuable information not only about a local-scale palaeoenvironment, but also about palaeoclimatological shifts in a regional scale.
