David Legg has a bachelors with first class honours from the University of Portsmouth in 2008, where he also received a prize for obtaining the highest mark that year for his dissertation entitled "Comparative taphonomy of Meyerella magna from the Atherfield Clay Formation". He went on to obtain a Masters with distinction at the University of Bristol, where he studied the phylogeny and palaeobiology of Palaeozoic scorpions, before joining Imperial College in 2010. He is currently studying the phylogeny and evolution of stem-group arthropods. This involves the study of material from the Burgess Shale and other lower Palaeozoic lagerstätten.

Russell Garwood recently finished a PhD on the 3D reconstruction of Carboniferous fossils at Imperial College, London, and is currently a research associate at the Natural History Museum, London. His research to date has focused on the palaeobiology of early terrestrial arthropods as revealed by CT scanning and computer reconstruction. Other research interests include the computer modelling of evolution, abiogenesis, and early evolution.

Jason Dunlop is curator of arachnids and myriapods at the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin. He is also Secretary of the International Society of Arachnology and Vice-President of the European Society of Arachnology, and is part of the editorial team for a number of international journals including Palaeontology. He has published over 140 papers, specialising on various aspects of fossil arachnids and other arthropods, as well as arachnid comparative morphology and phylogeny. These include a number of prominent contributions on early terrestrial life and on modern methods of morphological investigation. He is the lead author on a long-term project to catalogue all fossil arachnids and their relatives as a freely available, online resource.

Mark Sutton is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Earth Science & Engineering, Imperial College, London. He received his PhD on brachiopod taxonomy from the University of Cardiff in 1996, and his subsequent research centres around three-dimensional reconstruction and phylogenetic analysis of Palaeozoic invertebrates, including arthropods, molluscs, brachiopods, echinoderms and more besides. His research interests extend other applications of three-dimensional reconstruction and computer modelling in Palaeontology. He is best known for work on the Silurian-aged Herefordshire Lagerstätte. Mark is an editor for Palaeontologia Electronica, and a member of the Palaeontological Association Council.
