Permian plant fossil named for Edie Taylor

Friday, February 28, 2014

Congratulations to Paleobotany Senior Curator Edie Taylor, who has learned that a new Permian plant fossil has been named for her in honor of her long standing, high quality  research with Antarctic fossil plants. The generic name Ediea, is in honor of Edie for her many contributions to the understanding of Glossopteris and associated Gondwana floras. The species name, homevalensis, refers to the collecting locality at Homevale Station, Queensland, Australia.
