The FossilMap database contains records of macrofossils remains of Fagaceae species that cover the tertiary era.

The database was compiled from a literature review and existing electronic data bases by Ludivine Chabaud and Aurélie Ajas. The construction of the database was part of a research project funded by the ANR (Agence National de la Recherche), the french national funding agency for research.

The project is called PHYLOSPACE "Integrating cophylogenies, area shifts and paleomaps for inferring history of associations under climate change". The database comprises for the time being mostly reported fossil remains that were mentioned in english written records (publications or electronic sources).
