James Madison University Vertebrate Collection (JMUNHC-Vertebrate)

The JMU Natural History Collection comprises fluid and dry specimens of mammals, birds, fishes, amphibians and reptiles. Many of our specimens are teaching (no data) specimens, but we have a small collection of birds, herps, and fishes primarily from Virginia with data back to the 1970’s.
