The Atlas Co Sinh Vat Hoc Viet Nam (Paleontological Atlas of Viet Nam) will be the most extensively researched collection on the countryâ€™s palaeontology with contributions by both local and foreign scientists in the last 100 years.
The project was undertaken by the Viet Nam Institute of Geoscience and Mineral Resources (VIGMR) which is under the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment, with the aim of providing detailed information on the palaeo-biology in Viet Nam from the prehistoric period.
The series includes four volumes: Foraminifera, Mollusca, Brachiopoda and Spores and Pollens.
