Fossils are fun!

reallyoldplants is a blog about plant fossils and evolution, usually with a focus on the Cretaceous period and early flowering plants. My name is Nathan, I am a graduate student at the University of Maryland and the National Museum of Natural History where I am working on a thesis that centers around Early Cretaceous plant fossils which I collect each summer in Wyoming. I envision this as a place where people can read about interesting or unique plant fossils as a means to think about evolution, extinction, and how the plants around us came to be. I expect this vision to develop and change with time, but I hope you enjoy looking and thinking about fossils with me along the way.
