Spring 2009:
NATURAL HISTORY COLLECTION
This term I will be continuing work with senior Suellen Jacob to complete a comprehensive georeferenced database and summary of the mammal specimens collected from South Carolina held in natural history collections around the country. We began this work in the spring of 2008. Suellen will complete her final paper and present her seminar this term. Below is a map illustrating the density of mammal specimens by ecoregion. Dots represent specimen locations while shading represents density. The ecoregion best represented is the blue ridge escarpment.
