Descripción

Vertebrate Paleontology Collection at the Spanish National Museum of Natural Sciences (MNCN) is unique and very specialized service of CSIC, feature fossils of mammals, fishes, birds and amphibians. The Paleontology collection is strongest for Spanish localities, nevertheless, it includes specimens or replicas from Germany, United Kingdom, France, Egypt, Argentina, or United States, coming from donations, collectings, purchasings or interchanges carried out since the end of the 19th century. Some specimens have come from scientists who were at the fore of developing of geology and paleontology as sciences in Spain: Juan Vilanova y Piera, , Casiano de Prado, Eduardo Hernández Pacheco, Bermudo Meléndez Meléndez, José Royo-Gómez, or Federico Gómez-Llueca, and are mentioned in scientific papers since the 18th century to the present day.
We have over 65,000 catalogued specimens of fossil vertebrates, which range all geologic ages, and it is the most important collection of Spanish localities in the world. The collection include a significant range of Neogene mammals.
