The UAM Bird Collection emphasizes the birds of northwesternmost North America, including taxa endemic to Beringia and the circumpolar North, and is the best in existence for avian material from Alaska. The collection consists of over 30,000 birds. Almost all bird species and subspecies known to occur in Alaska are represented and are preserved primarily as skins, skeletons, and tissues. Most recent preparations include skin, partial skeleton, tissue, and stomach samples for each individual. Tissues are part of the UAM Genomic Resources Collection. Specimens are regularly loaned for scientific research. Specimen loan policies and a summary database are available for interested researchers. Arctos has a "storefront" subset of data in the UAM Bird Collection, and we are in the process of porting over the rest.
