About the Journal

Initiated in 1983, the Memoirs are a monographic series published by the AAP.


The Memoirs series publishes peer reviewed papers on all aspects of palaeontology and its applications in the earth and biological sciences, including taxonomy, biostratigraphy, vertebrate and invertebrate palaontology, palaeoichnology, palaeobotany, palynology, palaeobiology, palaeoecology, palaeobiogeography and biogeochemistry amon others. The Memoir series is designed for longer monographic treatments, but will also consider thematic sets of papers and commonly publishes conference proceedings.
