    Paleobotany: Reading the Signs

    A selection of fossils from the Florida Museum’s Paleobotanical Collection at Dickinson Hall will be on display in the Constance and Linton Grinter Gallery of International Art at the University of Florida from January 21, 2020 - August 21, 2020. 

    Plant fossils provide a unique window into our world’s past environment. Studying changes in plant species, distributions, and features allows researchers to better understand how global environmental and climate change functions. This in turn allows us to better understand our future. Paleobotany: Reading the Signs includes four cases that explain how paleobotanists here at the University of Florida use different fossils to learn about how our planet’s environment functions.

    The exhibit was co-curated with researchers at the Florida Museum of Natural History’s Paleobotanical Collection at Dickinson hall, and is supplemented with media from the Smithsonian.
