Horizons highlights paleoscience topics of interest for the next generation, written in an easy to understand, visual format. It is a scientific review of why studying the past is important, mainly aimed at older high-school students and undergraduate students interested in environmental issues and global change. It promotes the use of comics, pictures, and drawings that support short papers with strong messages about past sciences and how to prepare for a changing future.
