Association of Stratigraphic Palynologists from the
University of Toronto, Canada. AASP was established in
1967 by a group of 31 founding members to promote the
science of palynology. Today AASP has a world-wide
membership of about 800 and is run by an executive
comprising an elected Board of Directors and subsidiary
boards and committees.

Association of Palynologists, from the University of
Alberta. The Canadian Association of Palynologists was
founded in 1978 and currently (February 1995) consists of
about 60 members in good standing and 20 corresponding
members from outside Canada. - Internet

Palynologicum Scandinavicum. Collegium Palynologicum
Scandinavicum (CPS) is the association of palynologist in
the Nordic contries. It was founded in 1969 by Gunnar
Erdtmann and a group of colleagues. The purpose was to
stimulate research in palynology in the Nordic countries
and to support publication of the periodical Grana
Palynologica, now GRANA.

Federation of Palynological Societies (IFPS). IFPS is
a federation of regional, national, linguistic, and
specialist palynological organizations of the world. Its
goals are to ad vance knowledge in palynology and related
subjects by promotion of international cooperation and
sponsorship of regular meetings between palynologists of
all countries and regions.
Organization of Paleobotany The Secretariat of IOP,
at the University of East London's Palaeobiology Research
Unit, comprises a group of people interested in past
environments and how their palaeobiology can be
investigated. Most of the work is palaeobotanical, and
centres around the Plant
Fossil Record Database. This aims to get published
records of fossil plants - pollen, seeds, wood, flowers,
leaves, and so on - into a form that computers can
search. Using computers to study past environments is a
characteristic common feature of the activities of the
research group. Principal Components Analysis and Cluster
Analysis of palynological data, and of semi-quantitative
megafossil observations, are other important activities
of the group.IOP publishes IOP
Newsletters and maintains the Palaeo

East, London, UK. PaleoNet is a system of
listservers, www pages, and ftp sites designed to enhance
electronic communication among paleontologists. While
primarily designed as a resource for paleontological
professionals and graduate students, PaleoNet welcomes
input and participation from all persons interested in
the study of ancient life. The primary PaleoNet Pages
site is located at the Museum of Paleontology, University
of California, Berkeley. This site is informally
designated PaleoNet West. There is also a PaleoNet East
mirror of the Berkeley site located at the Natural
History Museum in London. Both sites are identical so you
should probably access the site that is geographically
closest to your location.
