Welcome to the website of the 26th Midcontinent Paleobotanical Colloquium (MPC).

The Midcontinent Paleobotanical Colloquium (MPC) is held on a different campus each year, providing an informal forum for paleobotany students and professors to meet with others interested in fossil plants for social interaction and exchange of information and ideas. For background and historical overview of the MPC, including its occasional drift to the extreme margins of the North American "midcontinent", see http://oak.cats.ohiou.edu/~rothwell/MPC/index.htm.
