Lab News


We are very pleased to announce that two papers on Cretaceous floras from Argentina have been published. My colleagues, Drs. Griselda Puebla and Mercedes Pramparo and myself described aquatic ferns from the Upper Cretaceous Loncoche Formation, Mendoza. The paper is published in Plant Systematics and Evolution: "Aquatic ferns from the Upper Cretaceous Loncoche Formation, Mendoza, central-western, Argentina".
The other paper titled "Late Cretaceous Aquatic Plant World in Patagonia, Argentina" is published at PlosOne with my colleagues Ruben Cuneo, Mari Zamaloa and Liz Hermsen.
Congrats to all co-authors!


We are pleased to announce that our paper titled “Reporte preliminar sobre la paleoflora de la Formación La Colonia (Campaniano-Maastrichtiano, Cretácico tardío), Chubut, Patagonia, Argentina” just came out. This paper is an invited contribution to a special issue of the Boletín de la Sociedad Geológica Mexicana. Thank you so much Laura Calvillo Canadell and Sergio Cevallos Ferris for inviting us to participate.


The published version of our paper "New marsileaceous fossils from the Late Cretaceous of South America and a reevaluation of Marsileaceaephyllum" is now available in Plant Systematics and Evolution. We are very proud that it made the cover!
