From Recordset

The Division of Vertebrate Paleontology houses one of the most important vertebrate fossil collections in North America, totaling over 70,000 cataloged specimens. Staff and students of the Division undertake research in vertebrate systematics, evolution, and paleobiology. The Division supports field collecting programs in the Triassic of Arizona and Utah and across the K/T boundary in Montana and North Dakota.
