With more than 10,000 specimens representing 16 orders and 76 families, the Mammalogy Collection in the department of Biological Sciences has a taxonomic and geographic scope that spans the planet, with strong representation from Northwestern Canada. The collection consists primarily of skins and skulls, with additional skeletal and fluid-preserved specimens. There are many rare and historically important specimens. The collection is used for teaching and research.
