  • American Museum of Natural History 4 published datasets

    The American Museum of Natural History is one of the world’s preeminent scientific and cultural institutions. Since its founding in 1869, the Museum has advanced its global mission to discover, interpret, and disseminate information about human cultures, the natural world, and the universe through a wide-ranging program of scientific research, education, and exhibition.


  • Angelo State Natural History Collections (ASNHC) 3 published datasets

    The Biology Department maintains the Angelo State Natural History Collections, which contains nearly 100,000 specimens of all types of living organisms. The collections are preserved, documented and curated assemblages that are important to a wide array of human activities. The collections are essential to the management of natural resources because they document the diversity and biology of organisms that impact agriculture, health and urban and other rural activities. They also characterize the ecosystems that we all depend on. The collections are a resource for many fields of biological research. The presence and growth of the collections at ASU are important to the university, San Angelo and the Concho Valley because they are a readily available local resource for the region.


  • Archbold Biological Station

    The mission of Archbold Biological Station is to build and share the scientific knowledge needed to protect the life, lands, and waters of the heart of Florida and beyond. Archbold is located in Venus, south-central Florida. Since inception in 1941, Archbold Biological Station has prioritized the development and curation of an on-site, multi-taxon, specimen-based, natural history collection. The collection of specimens is necessary for research at the Station and for outside investigators, emphasizing two essential activities -- the identification of species and documentation of biodiversity. After decades of steady growth the Archbold collection includes more than 250,000 well-preserved, and well-labeled specimens of plants, birds, fish, herptiles, mammals and arthropods. The Archbold collection is probably unrivalled in scope and size among biological field station collections in North America, and is likely one of the largest on-site collections encompassing the taxonomic diversity of a single (3,577-ha) site in the U.S.A. Our diverse natural history reference collection is a key component of the Station’s infrastructure, serving a broad community of staff researchers, visiting investigators and students, and supplying collection material and information to outside investigators. Plant specimens have been used in studies of community ecology, such as the response of vegetation to fire. The vertebrate collection was designed for studies of variation, growth patterns, life histories, and population dynamics of local vertebrates. The arthropod collection contributes to numerous studies needing insect identification, as well as providing large numbers of specimens with ecological data.

    The ASU Frank F. Hasbrouck Insect Collection contains approximately 850,000 insect specimens, representing at least 25 orders, 390 families, 4,000 genera, 12,000 species and 1,240 subspecies. Most specimens are from the southwestern United States; however considerable representative material is also available from other North American regions and Mexico.

  • Black Rock Forest Consortium 1 published dataset

    The Consortium possesses a herbarium collection of 623 mounted and labeled specimens, almost exclusively collected from the Forest by Kerry Barringer and Steven Clemants between 1990 and 1998, and used to complete a comprehensive list of all the vascular flora existing within the Forest (Barringer, K. and S. E. Clemants. 2003. The vascular flora of Black Rock Forest, Cornwall, New York. Journal of the Torrey Botanical Society 130(4): 292-308). The collection also includes some specimens collected from the nearby West Point Military Reservation by Steven Clemants, and a few specimens from other locations in the county, submitted by amateur collectors.

  • Buffalo Society of Nature Science

    A significant part of the Museum's collection of over 700,000 specimens pertain to the Greater Niagara Region and form by far the most complete record of life in all of its forms in this area in anthropology, botany, entomology, mycology, paleontology and zoology . They provide a good representation of the present and past natural history of the Niagara Frontier of New York and adjacent Ontario, as well as material of worldwide provenance of value in teaching, exhibition and research. The Buffalo Society of Natural Sciences maintains three principal categories of collections: research collections, special collections and teaching collections.


  • Butler University, Friesner Herbarium

    The Friesner Herbarium grew out of the personal collections of Dr. Ray C. Friesner, Professor and Chair of the Botany Department, 1920-1952. The Herbarium focuses on plants of Indiana, currently accessioning specimens that document new significant records or voucher field inventories. Most of our legacy specimens were collected during the 1920s, '30s and '40s when Butler had an active Botany Master’s Degree program focused on floristics and "phytosociology." There was also an active exchange program operating in those years that build our holdings of plants collected outside the state. We curate ca. 100,000 specimens, about half collected in Indiana. Important collectors include Ray Friesner, Charles Deam, John Potzger, Charles Ek, Helene Starcs, Paul Rothrock, Scott McCoy
