Summary

Full Title

University of California Museum of Paleontology

Description

The mission of the University of California Museum of Paleontology is to investigate and promote the understanding of the history of life and the diversity of the Earth's biota through research and education.

Additional Information

This resource provides access to data in the University of California Museum of Paleontology collections. We update taxonomy and check specimen identifications and associated information, but outdated names, mistaken identifications, and erroneous localities inevitably occur. We urge investigators to verify all data by direct examination of the specimens, and we appreciate notification of discrepancies (ucmp_data@uclink.berkeley.edu). Investigators are strongly encouraged to personally verify data before using it as a basis for publication.
