Tag: Alexander R. Schmidt
Alexander is an Associate Professor in the Department of Geobiology at the University of Göttingen, Germany. He received his PhD from the University of Jena in Germany, and worked as a postdoc at the Museum of Natural History in Berlin. His primary interest is in the evolution of Mesozoic and Cenozoic land plants and fungi. He is the author or co-author of about 80 peer-reviewed articles in palaeontology, botany and mycology, most of which are related to fossils found in worldwide amber deposits, from the Triassic to the Miocene.
Alexander enjoys prospecting for amber and modern resin in sometimes remote places such as New Caledonia and New Zealand, but most fossils he works with are already part of museums’ collections or are generously provided by amateur collectors.
