PaleoNet -- A communications system for paleontologists.


About PaleoNet
English (USA)

PaleoNet is a listserver-web site system designed to enhance electronic communication among paleontologists. While primarily assembled as a resource for paleontological professionals and graduate students, PaleoNet welcomes input and participation from anyone and everyone interested in the study of ancient life.

On 24 January 2016 the PaleoNet listserver and PaleoNet web pages were moved from the servers of The Natural History Museum to the servers of The Palaeontological Association. Complete instructions regarding subscription, unsubscription, use, and/or management of listserver accounts are available at the following url:

Please consult the web site or contact the system manager, Norman MacLeod if you are experiencing any difficulties with PaleoNet.

With kind regards.
