The U.S. National Science Foundation and iDigBio are required to collect information on use of digitized collections-based specimen data. Please help us meet this requirement every time you use this search portal. Sustainability of the national digitization effort depends on evidence of data use! Maybe later.

The Biodiversity Institute collections include 9 million specimens of plants, animals and fossils collected worldwide and 1.2 million archaeological artifacts. For more than 140 years, KU scientists and students have collected and studied life on Earth. Our specimens of plants and animals — prehistoric to living species, microscopic to colossal — have been gathered from every continent and ocean. Our archaeological artifacts document the past cultures of the Great Plains. Biodiversity Institute collections include DNA samples, sound recordings, images, tissues, skeletons and field notes. With powerful tools of information technology, we harness the data associated with our collections to forecast critical environmental events, such as the spread of diseases, invasive species and agricultural pests, and the effects of climate change.
