Fossils are excellent environmental archives. They provide us with very precise information about the weather and climate conditions of the past. The interpretation of this information is a central component of modern climate research. The museum's paleontological collection provides a glimpse into the climate of the last 500 million years. This provides a solid basis for the debate on the current climate crisis.
