The palaeontology collections are amongst the oldest collections at the Institute. They currently contain more than three million fossils – mostly vertebrates, invertebrates and plants. They are also the most diverse of our collections in terms of the range of taxons and the sizes of the specimens. Specimens range from nanofossils smaller than a single cell up to dinosaurs and whales.
