A large effort is underway to database and georeference the collections in the Research and Collections Section
of the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences. The purpose is to facilitate rapid and remote accessibility
for researchers, resource managers, and the public by providing, in part, a public searchable online collections database.
This effort is a work-in-progress. Therefore, the number of searchable records in the online database does not
reflect the complete holdings of museum collections. In addition to the current collections available online, Amphibians and Reptiles,
Fishes, Invertebrates, Crustaceans, and Mammals additional collections, such as Vertebrate and Invertebrate Paleontology,
and Ornithology, will be available spring - summer 2014.
Only general locality data are displayed for selected, sensitive species (e.g., those that are threatened by overharvesting). Please contact the relevant curator for more detailed information, if needed.
The Crustaceans collection is handled independently of the main Invertebrates collection. As a result, the search pages have been separated.
