Symbionts

We are using fossils to investigate the origin and evolution of symbiotic relationships between plants and microorganisms during the early development of life on land.

Our research objectives are to:

  • complete a systematic survey of microscopic eukaryotes based on the Museum's fossil slide collections
  • describe new microfossils using state-of-the-art imaging techniques
  • determine their affinities using modern phylogenetic methods.
