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.

FHSM Mammals Collection

Specimen Records: 39,529
Media Records: 0
iDigBio Last Ingested Date: 2017-01-08

Over 42,000 specimens, including 2 holotypes, are housed in the Sternberg Mammalogy Collection. The bulk of the collections are comprised of important voucher specimens and are invaluable resources for documenting the natural history of the Great Plains. The Sternberg Museum serves as a regional depository and tissue bank for many taxa. The Sternberg Mammalogy tissue bank contains over 2,000 preserved tissue samples, primarily from Kansas. These tissues are used extensively in molecular and DNA-based research, including systematics, phylogeography, and evolution. Tissue samples are available upon request.
