Australasian Cretaceous to Pliocene floras

  • Various collaborators on an ad hoc basis, principally John Conran (University of Adelaide; e.g., Greenwood et al. 2013, Reichgelt et al. 2013), Tammo Reichgelt (Lamont Doherty Earth Observatory, Columbia Univ., NY), and Patrick Moss (University of Queensland).
  • A paper reconstructing paleoclimate and palaeoelevation of the Eocene Bogong floras, important macroflora sites from Victoria, based on former PhD student Rachael Keefe’s doctoral work,  appeared in the Australian Journal of Earth Sciences in May 2017 (Greenwood et al., 2017).
