Denver Museum of Nature and Science (DMNS) Bird specimens (Arctos) for GGBN
The Denver Museum of Nature & Science Bird Collection houses approximately 57,400 specimens from around the world (1842 - present), with a focus on the Rocky Mountain and Great Plains regions. The collection includes study skins, skeletal material, taxidermy mounts, frozen tissue samples (~10000 individuals), and associated parasites (ecto and endo; curated separately). Growth of the collection continues primarily through field collection and salvage activities. A collection of approximately 7,000 egg sets and nests is curated separately.
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 19,915 records.
5 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.
