PaleoNet Migration Update
The migration was accomplished on 24 January, more quickly than I had anticipated. The PalaeoNet listserver is back online at its new address: Subscribers have resumed the posting of message and announcements, new subscribers are being signed up, everything seems to be running more-or-less as normal. Please update your address books and bookmarks with the new PaleoNet listserver address and website url. The PaleoNet Listserver Online User's Guide has been updated and can be found here. Please consult that if you need to manage your subscriber options. If anyone has any questions or concerns regarding the migration they should contact me at

The PaleoNet Gallery

An online exhibition of drawings, paintings and illustrations of paleontological subjects.
So much of paleontology has to do with visualising extinct animals and plants it’s only fitting the PaleoNet provide free space for artists and illustrators specializing in the representation of fossils to display samples of their work, especially insofar as the electronic medium is particularly well-suited to this subject matter. If you would like to contribute to the PaleoNet Gallery please contact Norman MacLeod. Meanwhile, enjoy both the featured and past exhibitions.
