THE AUSTRALASIAN PALAEONTOLOGISTS

Behind the Scenes

The Australasian Palaeontologists (AAP) was founded in 1974 to promote the study of palaeontology and allied sciences. The AAP supports palaeontology through the publication of academic journals, contributing to science outreach, holding regular meetings, sponsoring student events, and funding a program of annual grants and awards.

 

The AAP is based in the Australia but its members are from all over the world. The interests of members of the AAP encompass all aspects of palaeontology, including palaeobotany, taxonomy, vertebrate palaeontology, palaeoecology, and biostratigraphy. Whilst focussed on the Australasian region, the AAP connects with broader work in international palaeontology through publication and conferences.

 

The AAP is committed to providing equality of opportunity. Membership offered through the Geological Society of Australia(GSA) and together we accept applications regardless of gender, disability, age, sexual orientation, colour, ethnic or national origin, race, religious or other beliefs, marital status or family circumstance.
