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.

University of Alberta Museum of Zoology Ornithology Collection (UAMZ)

Specimen Records: 7,918
Media Records: 0
iDigBio Last Ingested Date: 2018-09-07

The Ornithology Collection contains more than 7,000 bird specimens from around the world, with strong representation from Western Canada. The collection primarily consists of whole bird skins, numerous skeletons, striking mounted birds, and a collection of eggs, beaks, feet and wings. There are many rare and historically important specimens, representing species now endangered. The collection is used for teaching and research, and is valued for its potential in genetic analysis as many species in Alberta are at the northern or western limit of their range.
