Invertebrate and plant palaeobiology
We use the Museum's fossil invertebrate, micropalaeontology and palaeobotany collections to unravel the origins and evolution of these diverse groups.
Our research focuses on the origins of land-dwelling plants during the Palaeozoic Era, and the co-evolution of plants and animals during the Mesozoic Era.
Marine invertebrate research
Our vast collections are supporting a range of research projects on bryozoans, molluscs, echinoderms and corals in the fossil record.
