Paleobotany Collection: Catalogs and Information
The UCMP paleobotany catalog ( available on-line ) contains information on over 22,000 specimens of fossil plants, algae, and fungi catalogued through 2002. 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.

3. Yale Peabody Museum: Paleobotany
Offers an overview of the museum's worldclass paleobotanical collection, and a searchable database of the fossils.
Collection History Search the Collection Catalog The Manual of Leaf Architecture The Yale Peabody Museum's paleobotanical collection is world wide in scope with about 75% of the collection derived from North America and the other 25% from South America, China, West Indies, Israel, Lebanon, Pakistan, Central America, Australia, Antarctica, Europe and the Arctic. The approximate geological distribution of the collection is 30% Mesozoic, 32% Cenozoic, 33% Paleozoic and 5% Proterozoic. The taxonomic distribution is estimated as follows: 1% Cyanobacteria, 5% "Algae", 2% Bryophyta, 5% Lower Vascular Plants, 10% Progymnosperms, 10% Gymnosperms, and 67% Angiosperms. The collection is probably one of the oldest and most historically rich collections in the United States tracing its roots back to the early 19th century. Included among its riches is a substantial body of plant fossils from the opening of the American West, from the Wilkes Expedition of 1838-1842 described by James Dwight Dana, Triassic and late Cretaceous floras from New York, New Jersey and southern New England; and the world's largest assemblage of cycadeoids. The Peabody nucleus has grown rapidly during the past 13 years from approximately 30,000 specimens to over 125,000 specimens, 4,200 of these being type specimens. Part of this expansion is the result of intense field collecting by the Curator, Leo Hickey, and his students. The largest increase, however, is due to the addition of two orphaned collections: the collection of fossil plants from the New York Botanical Garden and a substantial part of the Princeton University paleobotanical collections. As a result of the collections varied history, these holdings contains material that formed the basis of the research of many of the founders of American paleobotany, including Leo Lesquereux, J. S. Newberry, E. W. Berry, W. M. Fontaine, Lester Ward, G. R. Wieland and Arthur Hollick.

The FLMNH Paleobotanical Collection includes approximately 105,000 specimens. This is a conservative estimate that does not take into account the fact that an individual hand sample may contain more than one fossil of interest. In addition, the facility houses the John W. Hall paleobotanical collection (approximately 20,000 specimens) currently on a long-term loan from the University of Minnesota. The collection is international in scope, ranging from the Proterozoic to the Pleistocene, and including collections from 26 countries. Particular strengths of the collection are: Cretaceous of the US western interior (~17,000 specimens), Cretaceous and Eocene of southeastern North America (~31,000 specimens), Eocene and Oligocene of the Pacific northwest (~19,500 specimens), and Pennsylvanian of Indiana and Illinois (~6,000 specimens). Systematically the greatest strength of the collection is in Cretaceous-Tertiary angiosperms, which are represented by large numbers of well-preserved fruits and flowers as well as leaves and wood. A majority of publications generated by the collection have dealt with angiosperm systematics, but publications also have been generated on algae, fungi, lycopods, ferns, seed ferns, conifers, and insect mines and have been used to address questions of phylogeny, paleogeography, and paleoclimate.

Hans' Paleobotany Pages
Taxodium at Ellecom (NL): a living fossil. This website is dedicated to fossil plants . It is more than 400 million years ago, in the Silurian, that the first land plants came into existence 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 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 Cretaceous!

11. Yale Peabody Museum: Paleobotany, History
History of the paleobotany Collection. In 1866 JS Newberry was appointedto the chair of Geology and paleobotany at Columbia College.
History of the Paleobotany Collection
Search the Collection Catalog The Peabody Museum's Paleobotany collection is older than the Museum itself, which was founded in 1866 when George Peabody bequeathed money to Yale college to a build a museum of natural history. Benjamin Silliman, founder of geological science at Yale, assembled a teaching collection that included a substantial number of European fossil plants. Yale purchased this fossil collection after Silliman's retirement in 1850, and many of these specimens remain in the Museum's paleobotany collection. The Yale collection continued to grow throughout the late 1800's with the acquisition of several Cretaceous and Tertiary collections, including specimens from the Dakota Sandstone collected by Charles Sternberg from Ellsworth County, Kansas, a mid-late Cretaceous flora collection by W. H. Forwood in 1882 from Teton County, Wyoming and a collection of Tertiary specimens collected by Leander Davis and William Day during the 1870's from Bridge Creek, Oregon. In the early 1890's O. C. Marsh, the vertebrate paleontologist and the Peabody Museum's first director, began assembling a collection of cycadeoids. Aiding Marsh in this collection was Geoge R. Wieland, the Peabody's first paleobotanist. It is principally through Wieland's efforts that Yale ultimately accumulated a collection of 1,000 cycadeoid specimens, considered to be the world's largest collection of this extinct group of Mesozoic plants. Wieland retired in the 1940's, and the Museum was without a paleobotanist until 1962 when Theodore Delevoryas was appointed Associate Curator. During his ten year stay, Delevoryas expanded and enhanced the collection with specimens of Triassic and Jurassic cycadophytes. Following another hiatus in the Museum's paleobotanical curation, Bruce Tiffney assumed the position of Curator in 1977, adding several collections of Mesozoic and Tertiary flowering plants. In 1982, Leo Hickey came from the Smithsonian Institution to assume directorship of the Peabody Museum and to join Bruce Tiffney as Curator in Botany. Dr. Hickey brought with him, and he and his students continue to amass, major collections of Cretaceous and Tertiary angiosperm fossils. Dr. Tiffney left in 1986, leaving Dr. Hickey as Curator in charge of the paleobotanical collection.

13. Araucariaceae Description
of the family, including geographic distribution, taxonomy, ethnobotany, and paleobotany.......
Phylogenetic relationships within the Araucariaceae inferred from rbcL gene sequences (after Kershaw and Wagstaff 2001 choose a genus: Agathis Araucaria Wollemia Araucariaceae
Common Names
Araucaria family.
Taxonomic notes
Three genera with 40 species. Some authors elevate the family to the level of an order, Araucariales Heintze (1927). Relationships within the family, long contested (see the Agathis and Araucaria descriptions), have recently been elucidated by genetic (rbcL) analyses performed on 29 species within the family (Setoguchi et al. 1998). Phylogenetic trees for these analyses agree that all three genera are monophyletic and that Wollemia is the most primitive of the three. Within Araucaria , the four sections previously recognized ( Araucaria, Bunya, Eutacta , and Intermedia ) are supported, but relationships within Agathis remain somewhat unclear (see Agathis for more information). "The New Caledonian Araucaria and Agathis species each formed a monophyletic group with very low differentiation in rbcL sequences among them, indicating rapid adaptive radiation to new edaphic conditions, i.e., ultramafic soils, in the post-Eocene era" (
