    The composition of sesquiterpenoids and triterpenoids in the solvent extract of extant, Miocene and Eocene dammar (i.e., Class II) resins has been determined and compared to investigate the vulnerability of these biomarkers to diagenesis. Molecular evidence (e.g., absence of bicadinanes) and low Rock-Eval maturity values (Tmax
