3.  The description of the laboratory :

Macro Paleontology Laboratory is a laboratory that developed the sciences of paleontology and related services in the context of geology based upon the remnants of the life of fossils and traces of life within the framework of space and time. The laboratory also organizes Paleontology Lab in general studied the fossils of these phyla: Arthropoda, Bryozoans, Coelenterata, sponges, molluscs, Echinodermata and brachiopods. It is also studying the fossils of vertebrates including human fossils and studying paleontology / fossils quantitatively Biometry Analysis Method. Besides, it also applied paleontology in studying the geological history of an area, including its palaeoecology and paleoenvironment as well as in the field of geoarkeologi.
