Paleobotany is affiliated with the degree-granting Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, which offers M.A. and Ph.D. degrees. Interested students are encouraged to contact faculty members with complementary research interests. Advanced degrees in paleobotany may also be conferred through the Paleontology Program of the University of Kansas. Curators, who are also faculty members in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and courtesy professors in the Department of Geology, advise students, include them in research expeditions, and serve on their M.A. and Ph.D. committees. About 50 students are in residence at the Biodiversity Institute, which includes the Division of Paleobotany.
