Project Summaries

The project includes the following components:

University of Michigan Museum of Zoology, Fish Collection Database This collection contains catalog records exported from the Fish division's specimen collection. The database currently contains more than 58,000 records, with collection dates ranging from the 1850s to the present. The records include such information as scientific name, common name, collector and collection date, locality, and preparation type. Most recent data export: 10/2002. (Note: some records contain more complete information than others.)


University of Michigan Museum of Zoology, Fish Specimen Image Collection This collection contains images and descriptions of specimens from the Fish division representing species found in the Great Lakes region. The database currently contains more than 600 records. The records include such information as scientific name, common name, size, and description. Most recent data export: 08/2002. (Note: some records contain more complete information than others.)


University of Michigan Museum of Zoology, Fish Field Notes This collection contains page images of the Fish division's field notebooks, with accompanying data records. The records include such information as collection date, collection location, species collected, and related information. The database was created for this project, and resides in the library. (Note: some records contain more complete information than others.)


University of Michigan Museum of Zoology, Distribution Maps of Michigan Fishes This collection contains map images showing the locations in which fish have been recorded in Michigan. The atlas contains separate maps for 153 species. Records are keyed to indicate whether a voucher specimen is available in the University of Michigan Museum of Zoology.


University of Michigan Museum of Zoology, Fish Species Descriptions This collection contains descriptions of fish species from the Great Lakes region. These descriptions are modified from Hubbs' and Lagler's Fishes of the Great Lakes Region, 2003, by G. R. Smith. The records include such information as family, scientific name, common name, general and specific descriptions, distribution, and ecology.


University of Michigan Museum of Zoology, Mammal Division Collection Database with Specimen Images This collection contains catalog records exported from the Mammal division's specimen collection, and selected specimen images. The database currently contains more than 22,000 records, with collection dates ranging from the 1830s to the present. The records include such information as scientific name, common name, collector and collection date, locality, and preparation type. Most recent data export: 02/2002. Specimen images continue to be added. (Note: some records contain more complete information than others.)


University of Michigan Museum of Zoology, Mammal Division Maps This collection includes page images and brief data records of a scrapbook housed in the Mammal division comprised of maps of the state of Michigan, keyed to anecdotal reports of species in the state over time (primarily from the 19th and early 20th centuries). It is believed to have been created by N. A. Wood. The database was created for this project, and resides in the library.


University of Michigan Museum of Zoology, Mammal Field Notes This collection contains page images of the Mammal division's field notebooks, with accompanying data records. The records include such information as collection date, collection location, species collected, and related information.The database was created for this project, and resides in the library. (Note: some records contain more complete information than others.)


University of Michigan Herbarium, Fungus Collection Database This collection contains catalog records exported from the Fungus Collection's specimens. The database currently contains more than 24,000 records of the estimated 280,000 specimens in the collection, with collection dates ranging from the 1860s to the present. The records include such information as scientific name, common name, type, collector and collection date, and locality. Most recent data export: 10/2001. (Note: some records contain more complete information than others.)


University of Michigan Herbarium, Krieger's Watercolors of Fungi This collection contains images from the Herbarium's Krieger watercolor collection, along with records that describe them. Louis C. C. Krieger was a mycological artist who spent the years from 1918 to 1928 helping Baltimore physician and amateur mycologist Dr. Howard A. Kelly create a private mycological library. The watercolors shown here are from Dr. Kelly's library, which was donated to the University of Michigan in 1928. The database was created for this project, and resides in the library.


University of Michigan Herbarium Fungus Image Database This collection contains photographs of fungi specimens, electron microscope spore photographs, and accompanying data records. These images are also the illustrative plates in the monograph collection listed below. They are searchable as a separate database and are linked from the book pages as well.


University of Michigan Herbarium Fungus Monographs This collection contains page images and uncorrected OCR text of eleven 20th century monographs describing species of fungi. The texts are searchable, and return bitonal page images in response to query hits. Links are provided to the high-resolution images described above.
