Edith Taylor

Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology
Primary office:

Professor Taylor's research program in paleobotany is broadly concerned with the study of permineralized fossil plants and their paleoenvironments from the late Paleozoic and early Mesozoic of Antarctica. In addition, she has a long-standing interest in the structure and evolution of conducting systems in the fossil record, including both xylem and phloem. This work is concerned not only with Permo-Triassic plants from Antarctica, but with representatives from other permineralized floras as well.
