Rose Prevec (née Adendorff) has always had an interest in fossils, but took the scenic route as far as her qualifications were concerned, obtaining a Ph.D in plant pathology at the University of KwaZulu-Natal, before taking up palaeontology in earnest, at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg. After graduating with a Ph.D in palaeobotany in 2004, she was awarded a postdoctoral fellowship in the geology department at Rhodes University, in Grahamstown, South Africa, where she currently pursues her interests in the Glossopteris floras of Gondwana, and the changes in floras and plant-insect interactions that occurred across the Permian-Triassic Boundary. She also has interests in digital scientific illustration and palaeontological reconstructions. When she is not spending time with her geologist husband Steve, enjoying a quiet lifestyle in Grahamstown, she is a keen recurve target archer.
