Like in the last international/European meetings of paleobotany, NECLIME is proud to contribute again with two special scientific sessions
Cenozoic continental climate and vegetation patterns on both sides of
the North Pacific – an open NECLIME symposium (convenors: Torsten
Utescher, Yusheng (Christopher) Liu, Cheng Quan & Atsushi Yabe)
