Welcome to

Welcome to, a collaborative, open-access web resource for scientists and scholars engaged in paleobotanical research.

Our Goal

The goal of is to bring together the archaeobotany community to share data, information, and expertise for the common purpose of improving the identification of archaeobotanical specimens. We provide a platform for researchers to upload and share reference collection images and to engage in collaborative identification of unknown archaeobotanical specimens. We also support the sharing of identification guides and informational videos on paleobotanical methods, and we encourage researchers to upload profiles that facilitate communication, networking, and collaboration.
