Valley Life Sciences Building (VLSB)

Snail Image in VLSB Wall north side of VLSB The Valley Life Sciences Building, popularly known as "VLSB", is the home of the UC Museum of Paleontology. Although not open to the public, the UCMP houses a collection of numerous fossils that is particularly famous for its dinosaurs, some of whose bones are on display in the central corridor outside the Bioscience and Natural Resource Library. Fossils help in the study of evolution and in fact provide very strong evidence supporting the theory. Fossils are also very important in the dating of the sedimentary rocks in which they are found.
