From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation search Paleobotany , also spelled as palaeobotany (from the Greek words paleon = old and " botany ", study of plants), is the branch of paleontology or paleobiology dealing with the recovery and identification of plant remains from geological contexts, and their use for the biological reconstruction of past environments (paleogeography) , and both the evolutionary history of plants , with a bearing upon the evolution of life in general. A synonym is paleo phytology . Paleobotany includes the study of terrestrial plant fossils , as well as the study of prehistoric marine photoautotrophs , such as photosynthetic algae seaweeds or kelp . A closely-related field is palynology , which is the study of fossilized and extant spores and pollen Paleobotany is important in the reconstruction of ancient ecological systems and climate , known as paleoecology and paleoclimatology respectively; and is fundamental to the study of green plant development and evolution . Paleobotany has also become important to the field of archaeology , primarily for the use of phytoliths in relative dating and in paleoethnobotany

James Dwight Dana,
Over the past 20 years the collection has seen unparalleled growth. Part of this expansion is the result of field collecting, but the largest increase is from the addition of 2 orphaned collections: The New York Botanical Garden Collection and a substantial part of the Princeton University paleobotanical collections. These holdings include material that formed the basis of the research of many of the founders of American paleobotany, including J.S. Newberry, Leo Lesquereux, E.W. Berry, W.M.

Paleobotany Collection: Catalogs and Information
The UCMP paleobotany catalog ( available on-line ) contains information on over 26,000 specimens of fossil plants, algae, and fungi. The paleobotany type collection contains specimens which were illustrated or referred to in a publication as representative of a particular form the author(s) studied. Primary types are the specimens chosen as nameholders when a species or subspecies is first described. These include the holotype (the primary nameholder of a species) and paratypes (additional specimens used in the original species description). Secondary types are additional specimens assigned to a species and include primarily hypotypes (those specimens figured) and homeotypes (unfigured specimens). Although the latter type categories are not formally recognized by the International Code of Botanical Nomenclature (ICBN), they generally represent additional well preserved specimens from the original collections. In addition, specimen data and images of UCMP's modern cleared leaf collection are now available on-line. The database has been checked, but may still contain errors.

Why sisters? Is this a good interpretation? Why is this node unresolved? Biogeography for members of this clade? Alternative topologies? What data support each? Double fertilization - what was the ancestral state? Age of the anthophytes and stratigraphic debt? Can we resolve this node? What about Zygopteris, Stauropteris, and Cladoxylon Is there a good synapomorphy for ferns?

Hans' Paleobotany Pages
Taxodium at Ellecom (NL): a living fossil. This website is dedicated to fossil plants . The first indications for the existence of land plants date from 470 million years ago, from the Ordovician. The oldest fossils of land plants visible with the naked eye are about 425 million years old, from the Middle Silurian. From this time on the plants spread over the land and the continents turned to green. This was the beginning of an amazing development, which created the terms for animal life on land.
On the basis of mainly self-found fossils a view is given of plant life in the Silurian, the Devonian, the Carboniferous and the Permian. Enjoy the beauty and the multitude of forms of long vanished plants!
Small animals, living between the plants, are also considered.
And now a little bit Mesozoic and Tertiary!

A Brief Introduction to
Although most of the "green things" that populate our oceans and continents don't have the ability to move about and, hence, grab out attention, the world's biota couldn't exist without these organisms. The Plant Kingdom is the base of Earth's food chain and, as such, is the foundation for all life as we know it today, in the recent past, and in the deep past. That's not to say that today's biota is exactly like that of the past. Indeed, there have been dramatic changes in the base of the food chain since its first appearance. Documentation of these changes and understanding the reasons for these changes is only part of what Paleobotany - the study of fossil plants sensu latu (in the broad sense) - attempts to do.
Those scientists who actively pursue study of these seemingly "uninteresting" organisms have devised several approaches to examine life's history that can be separated into two broad categories TRADITIONAL and INTEGRATIVE APPROACHES. Traditional approaches follow methodologies established during and immediately after the Renaissance, while Integrative approaches are based upon methodologies that could only be established following advances in technology of the 20 th Century. Advances in analytical techniques in the next several decades will, once again, change the way in which we approach this and other disciplines but, the traditional approaches will remain basic to all avenues of research. If you don't know how it was preserved, what it is, how it is constructed, and what is its life cycle, you can't take the organism(s) and use it with any amount of credibility for more synthetic approaches in our desire to develop local, regional, and global models of how Earth works.

Fossils and Paleobotany
Earth History at the Royal British Columbia Museum Our fossil collection, of approximately 55,000 specimens, ranges from delicate impressions from the Paleozoic Burgess shale (nearly 600 million years old) to mammoth and mastodon bones and teeth of the last 20,000 years. We have beautifully preserved remains of fish that once swam in the Triassic seas where the Rockies now stand. Ammonite fossils represent many swimming cephalopod mollusks that lived 70 to 90 million years ago in Late Cretaceous seas on what is now the east side of Vancouver Island. The Haida Gwaii (formerly known as the Queen Charlotte Islands) are represented by many invertebrate species. The collection also contains turtles and bones and footprints of dinosaurs that roamed northern BC at the end of the Cretaceous, 50 million-year-old plant and insect fossils from the Kamloops area, and mollusks and vertebrate remains from 25 million years ago found at Sooke on Vancouver Island . Bird bones from Hornby Island , bison bones from Victoria and samples of lake, bog and stratigraphic sections from the last ice ages (Pleistocene Epoch) are also preserved.

This is a fantastic field of research, as Romania has an oppulent paleobotanical heritage ranging from Late Paleozoic (Late Devonian) to Quaternary. Paleozoic tracheophytes include Late Devonian, Late Carboniferous and Permian compressions and permineralizations. Mesozoic tracheophytes span the entire Jurassic period, with an exceptional diversity and preservation for the Lower Jurassic deposits, as well as almost the entire Cretaceous period (Aptian, Albian, Cenomanian, Turonian, and Senonian), permineralized or compressed. Neozoic tracheophytes include Late Eocene-Oligocene, Miocene and Pliocene representatives, permineralized and compressed, while the Quaternary is also rich in fossil plant material. Fossil plants in Romania: Neogene Oligocene The Petrosani Basin, together with other Oligocene sedimentary areas, preserves a rich, coal generating flora. Cretaceous Few important Cretaceous plant occurrences, such as those from Poiana Rusca, Babadag or Rucar, bear a beautiful flora.

Main research interests
Gymnosperms from the Permian and Triassic of Antarctica.
My current research at KU focusses on plants from the Permian and Triassic of Antarctica. I am especially investigating the affinities and biology of the arborescent gymnosperms found in these high-latitude floras. Some of my recent and ongoing projects include the study of root development in glossopteridalean seed ferns, the description of Triassic trunks with preserved bark, and the investigation of sprouting behavior (production of epicormic shoots and root suckers) in Permian and Triassic trees.

A note from the authors
Dear Colleagues:
we would be most appreciative. Thanks for your help. Tom, Edie and Michael History of the Paleobotanical Section of BSA "The Paleobotanical Section of Botanical Society of America is the oldest organization of Paleobotanists in the world. The founding father of the Section in the years of 1934-1936 was Loren C. Perry, then of Cornell University. Paleobotanical contributions at the Botanical Society of America's meetings had customarily been presented before the General Section. Professor Perry initiated discussions of forming a formal organization of the Paleobotany Section. The idea was enhanced by the visit to the U.S.A. of Dr. H. Hamshaw Thomas during the Pittsburgh meeting of the Botanical Society.
