Collecting and preserving paleontological specimens, a part of the natural history heritage of the mankind, is one of the statutory tasks of the Institute of Paleobiology of the Polish Academy of Sciences (IP PAS). The paleontological collections of the Institute have been assembled since 1952 in Poland and during expeditions to other countries (Mongolia, Spitsbergen, Antarctica, and others). Their main part is constituted by collections described in publications edited by the Institute. At present the number of such collections is about 800, their size is very variable, from a single specimen to over 10 000 fossils.
