Lab News


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!


Last week, Drs. Peter Linder and Yaowu Xing visited the lab. During their visit they worked with Dr. Gandolfo in various projects on Cenozoic paleoflora radiations. These projects are supported by the Swiss National Fund.


Good bye and good luck, Julieta!
Juli is returning to Trelew, Argentina, after spending a year and a half in Ithaca. She will continue her work on fossils and on finishing her Ph.D. Thesis. We will miss you!
