International Organisation of Palaeobotany: Plant Fossil Record
Users are able to search an extensive database of information on the plant fossil record, including descriptions and occurrences of modern genera and fossil species. Searches can be performed in a variety of ways: by Genera, description, taxonomy, occurrences, and by palaeogeographic maps. After locating the specific plant of interest in the database, the occurrences of that plant are then displayed in a palaeogeographic map.
