About this book

The Role of Collections in Ornithology highlights the research potential for ornithological specimens, and stimulates ornithologists poised to initiate a renaissance in collections-based ornithological research. Contributors illustrate collections and specimens in novel ways by adopting emerging new technologies and analytical techniques. Case studies display the use of museum specimens, emerging and non-traditional types of specimens, and developing new methods for making biological collections more accessible and "usable" for ornithological researchers. The Role of Collections in Ornithology demonstrates the power of ornithological collections to address key research questions at global scales.
