Canadian Association of Palynologists
 

Directory of Palynologists


The following listing includes palynologists from many subdisciplines of palynology and many geographic regions. The listing is arranged alphabetically, and subdivided according to major geographic regions (Canada, U.S.A., etc.). This list is not restricted to CAP members. Besides palynologists, this list also includes palaeoecologists, and some researchers from other branches of micro-palaeontology. If you have a correction to make to this list (e.g., a change of mailing address or e-mail address), or if you wish to be added to or removed from the list, please send a message to Alwynne B. Beaudoin.
