In this part of the Virtual Museum you can make a search for photographs of interesting exhibits of our paleontological collections, that are classified according to the modern paleozoological and paleobotanical systems. You can possibly also find out more detailed pieces of information on exhibits you are specially interested on.
It is to be supposed that this Virtual Museum might properly complete the geology education on universities, high- and secondary schools. Therefore, modified paleontological system, published in the university textbook by Prof. Kvaček, was used (The Principles of Systematic Paleontology I., Karolinum Press, 2000). However, in some details this published system was a little bit simplified and/or modified here in order to facilitate a search for entries. Our modified version also fits in with established conventions.
