https://youtu.be/seG9otqyvRs ANN ARBOR—Birds that produce faint chirps called flight calls during nighttime migration collide with illuminated buildings much more often than closely related species that don't produce such calls, according to a new analysis of a 40-year record of thousands of buil

Scientists call for national science agenda for biodiversity collections

“The story of our environment and life on Earth is told by approximately one billion biodiversity specimens as diverse as dinosaur bones, plants, parasites, insects, eggshells, microscopic pollen grains, audio recordings, field notes and CT scans, among other samples held in more than a thousand natural history museums, university science departments, botanic gardens, and other research centers across the country...”

The Biodiversity Collections Network (BCoN) has developed a national agenda that leverages digital data in biodiversity collections for new uses. Informed by a series of workshops and stakeholder discussions, Extending U.S. Biodiversity Collections to Promote Research and Education will stimulate ne...

Great to see funding programs available for this sort of work!

Omar Valencia Méndez, a recipient of the MCZ Ernst Mayr Travel Grant, recently visited the MCZ for his PhD project on marine and coastal gobies, specifically the poorly studied species found in the Tropical Eastern Pacific. He reviewed MCZ specimens and specimens loaned to the MCZ from Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History, University of Michigan Museum of Zoology, Field Museum, and Cornell University Museum of Vertebrates, for a total of almost 600. He corrected mistakes in past identifications and identified a new species that he will soon describe. #fundingfriday #mczichthyology

Ernst Mayr Travel Grants are awarded to recipients around the world for research in animal systematics and support visits to natural history museums. https://mcz.harvard.edu/ernst-mayr-travel-grants
