organisation profile

The Institute of Paleobiology (formerly the Institute of Paleozoology) is one of the oldest units of the Polish Academy of Sciences; established in December, 1952. It consist of two scientific departments: Department of Environmental Paleobiology and Department of Evolutionary Paleobiology, and manages Museum of Evolution.
The Institute is certified for awarding Ph.D. and D.Sc. degrees in geology. The Institute is publisher of the quarterly journal Acta Palaeontologica Polonica, with 5-Year Impact Factor 1.747, ranked 18th among 53 international paleontological journals listed by ISI.

The Institute conducts biologically-oriented research on ancient life. Descriptions of fossil biota are accompanied by comparative studies of their Recent counterparts. The scope of its research covers vertebrates, invertebrates and microfossils of various origins. The Institute participates extensively in international cooperation. It has organized and participated in scientific expeditions to various areas of the world (Mongolia, Spitsbergen, Antarctica). Studies of paleofloras began in 1990, and a year later a biogeological research programme started, integrating life sciences with Earth sciences.
