Flinders Palaeontology is an inclusive centre of learning where researchers, students and volunteers work together to explore patterns in the evolution and ecology of vertebrates through time, and the environmental processes that have influenced them. Our research is global in scope, but we are especially committed to exploring the unique and understudied Australian fossil record.

Main research areas

Our values

Flinders Palaeontology strives to embed six core values in everything we do.


Acknowledgement of country

Flinders Palaeontology is located on the Bedford Park campus of Flinders University, which is sited on the traditional lands of the Kaurna people. We offer our respect to Kaurna elders past and present.

Our research and teaching activities take us to many different parts of Australia. We recognise that the sovereignty of these lands was never ceded by First Nations Peoples, and we respect their enduring connections to country.

Flinders Palaeontology stands with BIPOC communities in their fight for equality and justice.
