Angelo State Natural History Collections (ASNHC) Mammal specimens (Arctos)
The ASNHC Mammal collection comprises more than 20,000 records. It is the fourth largest mammal collection in Texas. Almost half of the collection is of species from Texas. Significant holdings are also represented from Mexico (3,600 specimens), Guyana (200), and the Galapagos Islands, seaward of Ecuador (300). Recent field studies in Sulawesi, Indonesia and several U.S. states have added specimens to the collection.
The data in this occurrence 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 20,145 records.
2 extension data tables also exist. An extension record supplies extra information about a core record. The number of records in each extension data table is illustrated below.
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.
