    Plant Fossils from the Pennsylvanian–Permian Transition in Western Pangea, Abo Pass, New Mexico
    William A. DiMichele, Spencer G. Lucas, Cindy V. Looy, Hans Kerp, Dan S. Chaney (Author)

    Paleobotany is what this one is all about! Bill DiMichele and coauthors tease out important data on the 1940-41 fossil plant collections from five stratigraphic levels by field geologist/paleobotanist Charles B. Read, whose field notes cannot be located. Thus secondary sources were used to assess stratigraphic intervals covered by the collections. Specimens examined are in the permanent collections of the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History.

    The Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian building on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., has a significant problem with dark staining on its facade.
