PalaeoPoems: A digital anthology highlighting a unique form of science communication

A timeline showing the topics of each poem we've featured to date (May 27, 2021) and their year of publication. A squiggly rainbow coloured line goes from 1822 to 2020. Each date is displayed on a silhouette of the animal, plant, or trace fossil that was the topic of the poem from that year.
Timeline of the PalaeoPoems featured on our website so far (May 2021). Graphic by Katrin Emery, as appeared on our poster for CSVP 2021.

This poster was presented at the Canadian Society of Vertebrate Palaeontology conference in 2021. We focused on how poetry can be used as science communication, and talked about the PalaeoPoems.com project.
