Vertebrate Paleontology conducts research, research training and graduate education on the world’s prehistoric vertebrates – their global diversity, evolution, geography, genomics, morphology, conservation, ecology and behavior. These studies are grounded in research collections of 150,000 specimens and their associated data.
