Paläontologie aktuell

The former newsletter of the Paläontologische Gesellschaft

Until 2001, Paläontologie aktuell was the current newsletter of the Paläontologische Gesellschaft for the rapid information of its members on current topics and developments.

In order to make palaeontological contents known beyond the circle of its members and to emphasize the importance of palaeontology within the geosciences, the Paläontologische Gesellschaft, together with other professional associations and many other geo-societies, has been participating in the joint news organ GMIT since 2001.

Since 2005 the magazine Fossilien informs hobby collectors through contributions by members of the Paläontologische Gesellschaft in a separate section of the collectors' magazine.

You can download the current issues of Paläontologie aktuell up to the year 2000 as PDF documents here.
