Florida Museum of Natural History Zooarchaeology Comparative Databases

The Florida Museum of Natural History offers a number of Web-accessible databases, including this group of databases for the museum's zooarchaeology collection. The physical collection contains "skeletons of vertebrates and exoskeletons of mollusks and crustaceans and their associated data." Information is accessible through individual databases for birds, bivalves, crustaceans, fishes, gastropods, mammals, and reptiles and amphibians. The databases may be searched by taxonomic, geographic, or catalog number query. The collection primarily contains specimens excavated from areas in southeastern US, West Indies, Caribbean, and northwestern South America. It is intended for use "in a comparative way to identify the fragmentary remains from archaeological data" as well as to "estimate size, age, and season of death of animals recovered from archaeological contexts." Researchers are encouraged to offer suggestions for improving the databases.
