Vertebrate Paleontology

The University's fossil vertebrate collection of dinosaurs and other early vertebrate animals is one of the finest of its kind in Canada, containing over 41,000 catalogued specimens including some 70 type specimens. The original collection was established in 1920 and this exceptional resource now supports paleontological research and teaching in the departments of Earth and Atmospheric Science and Biological Sciences. This collection is curated by the Department of Biological Sciences, in the Laboratory for Vertebrate Paleontology.
