Although the collection includes material from throughout the world, nearly 90% of the specimens are from Utah and surrounding states reflecting the work of Stephen Durrant and students on regional mammals. Important historical material includes several thousand specimens from the Bonneville Basin, as well as collections from Glen Canyon, Flaming Gorge, and other locations within the Colorado drainage that have since been inundated by reservoirs. Recent research by staff has focused on resurveying of historical sites in the Great Basin, expanding the collection material from Utah and Nevada.
