Brigitte Meyer-Berthaud is a CNRS Research Director in a laboratory dedicated to the modeling of plant architecture and vegetation in Montpellier, southern France. She is a palaeobotanist with a main interest on the Devonian and Early Carboniferous plants that evolved modern morphologies. She is specialized in anatomically preserved plants and is currently involved in the study of floras from Australia and Morocco, that correspond to the former Gondwana paleocontinent.

Anne-Laure Decombeix is CNRS researcher in the department "Botany and modeling of plant architecture and vegetation" in Montpellier, France. She has a PhD in palaeontology from the University of Montpellier and was a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Kansas. She works on plants from the Palaeozoic and early Mesozoic, with a particular interest for the diversity and biology of fossil trees and for the fossil floras of Gondwana. Recent fieldwork has taken her to Australia and Antarctica.

Dr. Philippe Steemans is a researcher in Palaeozoic palynology. His work is focused on Ordovician, Silurian and Devonian miospores from all continents, but preferentially from Saudi Arabia, Africa, South America and Europe. He is a specialist of cryptospores and he studies the invasion of continents by the earliest land plants. His main scientific interests are related to taxonomy, biostratigraphy, palaeoecology, and palaeogeography.
