The Paleontology Portal

The Paleontology Portal

The Paleontology Portal is a resource for anyone interested in paleontology, from the professional in the lab to the interested amateur scouting for fossils to the student in any classroom. It includes fossil images searchable by taxon and time period, the history of paleontology in the US, a guide to particularly rich fossil sites, a searchable database of museum collections, and a nice webliography of additional sources. Take a site tour to find out more about what you will find here.

The site was produced by the University of California Museum of Paleontology, the Paleontological Society, the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology, and the United States Geological Survey. It was funded by the National Science Foundation.
