Paleontological Research Institution: Touring the Collections

The Paleontological Research Institution has a museum containing "a world-class collection, containing everything from dinosaur eggs of China to one of the most comprehensive Paleozoic trilobite, brachiopod, coral and crinoid collections in the United States." The Touring the Collections page allows visitors to view some of the museums most valued items. Students can currently choose from either arthropods or echinoderms, and then from several subcategories from the virtual specimen drawers. The arthropods, for example, contains Chelicerates, Crustaceans, Insects, and Trilobita. Each drawer has a description of the particular class and pictures of the specimen, which, when clicked, contain its order, family, genus, species, rock unit, age, and location. This is a great accompanying site for those studying paleontology, geology, biology, and probably several other subjects.
