LSUMZ Birds Collection

Specimen Records: 180,988
Media Records: 0
iDigBio Last Ingested Date: 2017-01-08

The collection of approximately 184,000 cataloged voucher specimens includes about 150,000 skins, 22,000 complete skeletons, and 8,000 fluid-preserved specimens, as well as 2,000 spread wings, 20,000 stomach-content samples and thousands of tape-recordings of bird vocalizations. Holdings from Peru, Bolivia, the West Indies, and the Southeastern United States are the largest in the world. The collection is among the 5-10 largest in the world from Mexico, Guatemala, Belize, Honduras, Costa Rica, Panama, and Argentina. There are also substantial holdings from the western USA, Brazil, Africa, Kuwait, and Borneo. The vast majority of specimens were collected since 1950 and, therefore, relatively data-rich; a high percentage of specimens collected since 1980 have associated tissue samples. .For information about how to obtain a loan see: https://sites01.lsu.edu/wp/mns/files/2014/04/Loans-Information-Requests.pdf
