New Paper: The distribution of plant fossils and their palaeoecology in Duckmantian (Bashkirian, Lower Pennsylvanian) strata at Brymbo, North Wales, UK

Hot off the press! A new publication by Barry Thomas (Palaeobotanist and BHT Trustee), Peter Appleton (BFF friend and advocate) and others about the Palaeobotanical diversity and palaeoecology of the Brymbo Fossil Forest. It’s open access so you can get a copy for free!

In this paper is information about the flora found within the strata of the Brymbo fossil forest site, how it changes in response to environmental fluctuations over time and the first report of fossil lycopod spores from the site! This piece of literature will undoubtedly be of great help to us working on the site in identifying the species we find during the upcoming excavation and their ecological context.
