Abstract [en]

The Swedish Museum of Natural History (Naturhistoriska riksmuseet: NRM), under the authority of the Swedish Ministry of Culture, is the largest museum in Sweden in terms of research and collections. Although officially founded in 1819 by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, some collections held at the museum date back to donations received by the academy following its foundation in 1739. The museum includes six research departments (Palaeobiology, Zoology, Botany, Geology, Bioinformatics, and Environmental Science) along with separate divisions for exhibitions and education. Palaeobotanical research is currently carried out within the Department of Palaeobiology (PAL). The department’s homepage can be found at: https://www.nrm.se/ en/forskningochsamlingar/paleobiologi.9000584.html. The department hosts about two million palaeontological specimens; around 400,000 of these are fossil plants, algae and fungi—making this one of the world’s largest palaeobotanical resources. The department currently hosts 24 palaeontologists, of which seven are full-time permanent employees (Vajda & Skovsted, 2021). The remainder are emeriti, students, postdoctoral researchers and additional researchers funded through scholarships, fellowships and other grants.
