Sangmin Lee is a postdoctoral research fellow at the Deakin University (Melbourne, Australia). His research work focuses on the taxonomy, palaeobiogeography, and phylogeny of late Palaeozoic brachiopods. In particular, since 2012 he has performed geological/palaeontological field trips to Spitsbergen, Arctic Norway for reconstructing the palaeogeography, palaeoclimate, and palaeoecology in the northern margin of Pangea during the late Palaeozoic. In addition, he is developing a 3-D geometric morphometric methodology applied to brachiopod external shells, using X-ray microtomographic and laser-scanning techniques.

Horng-Sheng Mii is a professor of the National Taiwan Normal University. His research interest is mainly to reconstruct paleoenvironment by analyzing the stable carbon and oxygen isotope compositions and elemental concentration of carbonate fossil shells. He is collaborating in many paleoenvironmental projects including studying fossil brachiopods collected from Devonian to Permian, foraminifera obtained from Quaternary marine cores, and Holocene molluscs collected from archaeological sites.
