AMNH Mammal Collections

最新版本 由 American Museum of Natural History 發佈於 Dec 22, 2016 American Museum of Natural History

Founded in 1869, the AMNH mammal collections are among the oldest in the museum. Today, the Department of Mammalogy houses over 275,000 specimens, making it the third largest collection of recent mammals in the world. The scientific mission of the Department of Mammalogy is to describe the diversity of living and recently extinct mammals and to explore the mechanisms responsible for their evolution and extinction. In fulfillment of this objective, the department collects, archives and studies specimens of recent mammals and the data associated with those specimens. We aim always to provide the highest standards of curatorial care and to promote access to the collections by other scholars. The collections are visited by an average of 130 researchers every year, and the Department loans over 500 specimens a year to researchers around the globe. The Recent Mammals Collection, together with the remarkable collection of books, journals, and manuscripts of the Department Library and Archives provides scholars with outstanding resources for research in mammalian systematics, biodiversity and evolutionary biology.

Data Records

The data in this 出現紀錄 resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 290,333 records.

This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.

地理涵蓋範圍

The scope of the collections is worldwide, with areas of particular strength including Australia and New Guinea (30,000 specimens), Central Asia (12,000 specimens), Central Africa (30,000 specimens), and South America (50,000 specimens). Today, the Department draws on these collections to support active research programs on mammalian diversity and evolution in groups such as bats, marsupials, and rodents from a wide range of countries including the Central African Republic, French Guiana, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, Peru, and Vietnam.
