Abstract (in english)
   In the study of amber from deposits, finds and museum collections, infrared absorption spectroscopy (IRS) was mostly used to identify and to compare geographically varied resin saméples. Only exceptionally other methods were also employed. Succinite and other fossil resins as gedanite, gedano-succinite, stantienite, beckerite, glessite, siegburgite, kranzite, "young amber", rumanite group, simetite, ajkaite, walchowite group, other retinite and five unidentified fossil resin fromEurope and from other continents as the compare material - cedarite, burmite, "Japan amber", "Borneo amber", "China amber", retinite from Asia and contemporaryresins are described and presented with catalogue and photos. The resins studied come mostly from the collections of Muzeum Ziemi PAN (The Museum of the earth, Pol Acad.
   Sci., Warsaw), Naturhistorisches Museum: Mineralogische Abteilung, Wien (Natural Museum: Mineralogy Division, Vienna), Narodni Museum (National Museum, Prague), as well as from many other institutions and people, who kindly provided the reseach material. The studies have been conducted since 1984, and the regional collection of fossil and subfossil resins of the world at the Museum of the Earth expands since the Amber department was established
