A Community of Paleobotany Researchers & Enthusiasts
Paleobotany is the study of fossil plants. Much like how paleontologists dig up and study extinct dinosaurs, paleobotanists hunt for plant remains that are millions of years old! At Friends of Fossil Forests, we seek to inspire the next generation of paleobotanists, explore the implications that plant fossils can give us about past environments, and understand the evolution and ecology of ancient plants.
