We're just getting settled in at the moment, so for now please go to [http://www.palaeos.com Palaeos.com] for content, or if you want, sign up and help build what is hoped will be the web's most comprehensive project on the history and [[evolution]] of [[life]] through [[time]], and for that matter of the Earth as a whole.

We're building what we hope will be the web's most comprehensive project on the history and [[evolution]] of [[life]] through [[time]], and for that matter of the Earth as a whole. We'd love it if you'd sign up and join us!  Palaeos.org is an attempt to build upon the outstanding work done at [http://www.palaeos.com Palaeos.com] by sharing the load - if you can't find what you're looking for here, please check out Palaeos.com to see if it's there (and if it is, why not transfer it to the wiki!)

As a [[wiki]], Palaeos org is able to be edited by anyone, and we encourage anyone who wishes to to get involved. This site will only be as good as people are willing to make it. The only request is that it was agreed that a policy of non-anonymity would be preferred, so if you do want to edit, you'll need to create an account and put your name to anything you do.
You don't necessarily have to know specialised topics in science to contribute, although if you do that is great too!  See [[Palaeos:About#Contributing to Palaeos Wiki|Contributing to Palaeos Wiki]] for some ways you can participate.  Or just enjoy browsing through the growing number of pages already set up.
