IMPORTANCE OF THE COLLECTION OF THE “LABORATÓRIO DE PALEONTOLOGIA E EVOLUÇÃO” OF THE GOIÁS FEDERAL UNIVERSITY TO THE PALOENTOLOGICAL RESEARCH IN THE GOIÁS STATE, BRAZIL
Palavras-chave:Paleontology, curation, collection, Goiás State
ResumoAt the beginning of 2015, the Laboratório de Paleontologia e Evolução (Labpaleoevo) of the Goiás Federal University (UFG), Aparecida de Goiânia Campus, added to its collection 335 specimens of fossils. Most specimens are from the sedimentary basins of Araripe, São José de Itaboraí, and Paraná, located at the states of Ceará, Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, and Goiás. This collection is still in process of implementation and institutionalization, proper methods for curating the paleontological material are being applied. The present paper aims to present the institutionalization process of Labpaleoevo and its fossil collection, which has the potential for revealing new data important to the Brazilian Paleontology. As a consequence, this process will give the UFG's Geology Course support to the curation of fossil specimens, and may enhance many paleontological studies in Goiás State as well.
