Palaeobotanical Research Unit Maintained by Hans Kerp. The Westfälische Wilhelms University in Münster is one of the few German universities where palaeobotany is taught and palaeobotanical research is carried out.
Research of the so-called "Forschungsstelle für Paläobotanik" (= Palaeobotanical Research Unit) primarily focuses on Palaeozoic and early Mesozoic floras. The aims are to get a better insight in the natural relationships between the various, long since extinct groups of fossil plants, their development and ecology, as well as biostratigraphy, palaeoclimatology and phytogeography.

Botany Related URLs: This is an extensive collection of botanical links maintained by Raino Lampinen, a botanist in the Botanical Museum, Finnish Museum of Natural History, in the University of Helsinki. It contains many links including images, microscopy related links and some good paleobotanical links.

Austrian types can be found at this url. As noted on the Personalia page, Johanna Eder has made available a link to a database of type specimens from various Austrian museums. Searchable, with links to those in control of the specimens, if you want to see the fossils in person for a closer look.
