Department of Geology & Palaeontology

Linking the evolution of life with the changing paleoenvironments of Earth’s history is a key issue of the department. Scientific results are published in international journals and presented to the public in exhibitions and talks.

With more than 3.5 million specimens the collection of the department is an archive of international rank.
