Summary
Abstract: This database contains collections information for the Paleobotany Collections
of the Division of Paleobotany, Natural History Museum and Biodiversity
Research Center, University of Kansas. The collection contains a large number
of plant fossils from throughout the world, ranging in age from Precambrian to
Miocene. The Antarctic collections include more than 3,000 specimens of
permineralized peat from the Beardmore Glacier area, fossil wood from
throughout the Transantarctic Mountains and compression/impression fossils from
Permian and Triassic rocks in Antarctica. Also included are peels of
permineralized specimens, >5,000 microscope slides of Antarctic material,
palynology preparations, and photographs of specimens. Type and figured
material from publications of new plant taxa from the Collections are also
maintained. All are available for scholars to examine and study.
