Paleobotany *

Nearly 300,000 species of plants live on Earth today. This lively course with curator of paleontology Ian Miller starts with the first land plants and moves through the 400 million-year history of plant evolution on Earth. Learn the major groups of plants and how fossils allow paleobotanists to reconstruct ancient environments and climates. A field trip to Denver Botanic Gardens on Saturday, December 13 provides an opportunity to look at modern plants from the perspective of their ancient history. This course is an elective for the Paleontology Certification Program. Paleontology 101 is a prerequisite for this course.
