Discoverers Event – The Value of Museum Specimens in Ecological Research and Conservation
April 16, 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Speaker: Jennifer Sheridan
Natural history collections are often seen as a window into the past, but they can also serve as a view to the future. Museum collections, specifically amphibian and reptile collections, are critical not only to new species descriptions, but also to fully understanding ecological impacts of climate change, and impacts of land-use change. Research, utilizing CMNH and other natural history collections, touching on these topics will be presented.
