can under no circumstances advance without first a correct and unequivocal taxonomical identification of the fossil organisms being studied. That is an absolute precondition for any basic palaeontological research.
with scientists of other disciplines creates synergy, broadens our horizons and ultimately helps us to achieve our scientific goals.
Education and teaching
