Membership in the Paleobotanical Section of the Botanical Society
of America is open to anyone interested in fossil plants. Members receive

by the Section. The Bibliography not only contains the recent
research publications of Section members, but also provides a convenient
way of keeping abreast of research interests of Section members. A full
listing of current addresses is provided in the Bibliography
. Other publications of the Section are
listed on a separate page.
