a. Archaeozoology – investigating animal bone remains found in archaeological sites for understanding how human communities acquired animal foods; osteological comparative collection, archaeozoology library, stereomicroscopes, osteometry microscopes and tools, related facilities for training, study and storage of the archaeozoological material;
b. Archaeobotanics – investigation of plant remains found in archaeological sites for understanding how human communities acquired vegetal foods; archaeobotanical collections, the present flora collections, stereomicroscopes, carbonization furnace, centrifuges, microscope, facilities for training and study of plant remains, restoration and conservation;
c. Archaeogenetics – extracting ancient DNA as a source for minimum error identification of species, intraspecific comparisons of populations, evaluating the distance between two taxa, phylogenetic reconstruction of the evolution, the origins and evolution of domestic animals;
d. Paleoanthropology – biometric investigation of human remains from archaeological sites; paleoanthropological collection, osteometry instruments, facilities for training, research and storage of paleoanthropological material.
