Gee Research Group

Welcome to the Gee Lab!

We are interested in all aspects of botany and paleobotany, from the living to the fossil realm. Our approach to fossil plants is to view them as living organisms in Deep Time, and our main areas of research are morphology, anatomy, biological affinity, ecology, and taphonomy. Most of our studies focus on the paleobotany of the Mesozoic and pre-Quaternary Cenozoic, although we also study living plants, the formation of plant assemblages in the sedimentary record of the present day, and plant fossilization in order to understand the past.
