Taxonomic review of old vertebrate specimens at the Natural History Museum in Helsinki

Projekt: Forskningsprojekt


Beskrivning (abstrakt)

Old scientific specimens of mammals and birds (and other vertebrates) in the collections of the Finnish Museum of Natural History in Helsinki were morphologically reviewed during June - August 2017. The purpose was to bring their taxonomy up to date, and to assign identities to previously unindentified/misidentified specimens. (This project was a continuation of similar research carried out in 2016.) Circa 500 individual vertebrate specimens were investigated. The project resulted in the addition of several "new" taxa to the Museum's collections.
