UTEP Birds (Arctos)

Specimen Records: 3,057
Media Records: 8
iDigBio Last Ingested Date: 2018-09-07

The University of Texas at El Paso Biodiversity Collections Bird material with reliable locality data is mostly from the United States, but there is also a significant component of exotic or native taxa with inadequate collection data. The collections include skeletal material along with the traditional skin-skull/study skin specimens.
