International Organisation of Palaeobotany promotes international
co-operation in the study of palaeobotany. This is achieved through
the publication of an informative newsletter and organisation
of international conferences focusing on all aspects of palaeobotany.
Organisational activities also include collaboration with numerous
other international bodies to ensure the continued scientific
development of palaeobotany and its further integration within
Research Unit Maintained by Hans Kerp. The Westfälische
Wilhelms University in Münster is one of the few German universities
where palaeobotany is taught and palaeobotanical research is carried
Research of the so-called "Forschungsstelle für Paläobotanik"
(= Palaeobotanical Research Unit) primarily focuses on Palaeozoic
and early Mesozoic floras. The aims are to get a better insight
in the natural relationships between the various, long since extinct
groups of fossil plants, their development and ecology, as well
as biostratigraphy, palaeoclimatology and phytogeography.
