The bird collection at the NTNU University Museum goes back to approximately 1800. It consists mainly of objects from the norwegian mainland, but also has a small historic collection of birds collected between 1860 and 1910 from all over the world (app. 450 objects). This historic collection includes many species which today are endangered, threatened or distinct. The collection consists mainly of mounted objects, but there are also some skeletons, skulls and objects preserved on ethanol. From the latest years there are also preserved tissue samples of almost all new objects. These samples are stored at -80 degrees C. The geographic coverage of the objects in this collection is mainly Norwegian mainland. Within Norway mainland the majority of objects collected origins from central Norway. 6,959 occurrences

The collection of herpetiles (amphibians and reptiles) at the NTNU University Museum dates back to the 1860s. The collection consists mainly of objects preserved on ethanol, but also contains a few mounted objects and skeletons. The collection includes a small historic collection of herpetiles collected between 1868 and 1915 from different parts of the world (approximately 200 objects). Todays collection covers the reptilian and amphibian species found in Norway (11 species). It also includes more than 30 species from other countries. The geographic coverage of the objects in this collection is mainly Norwegian mainland. Within Norway, the majority of the objects collected origins from central and southern Norway. 3,110 occurrences

We describe the wildlife road kill data set collected by citizen scientists from the Taiwan Road Observation Network (TaiRON). This data set includes 46,416 geospatially referenced occurrence points of wildlife found on road networks in Taiwan starting in 2011 and until Dec. 2017. These road kill occurrence points come from Taiwan and the main islands that belong Taiwan, an 35,000 km2 island off the Eastern coast of China with high biodiversity and endemism. Each observation includes at least one photo, species name, and date and time of collection, Project managers and group experts identify each photograph and label them with vernacular and scientific names. The labelled observations are collected via an on-line platform, and compiled into a continuously growing dataset of structured records. The data set is still growing as the membership of TaiRON is very active and increasing, with over 14,000 current members. TaiRON and its data set will provide important conservation information about the impacts of human activity and pressures associated with roads on wildlife biodiversity in Taiwan and provides an example of framework that can be replicated elsewhere. 46,416 occurrences

The collection of mammals at the NTNU University Museum dates back to the 1870's. The collections also includes a small historic collection of mammals origining from all over the world. The mammal collection contains mounted objects, skeletons, skulls, antlers and ethanol preserved objects. From the latest years there are also preserved tissue samples of almost all new objects. These samples are stored at -80 degrees C. Todays collection covers most of the mammalian species found in Norway. The geographic coverage of the objects in this collection is mainly Norwegian mainland. Within Norway the majority of objects collected origins from central Norway. 2,972 occurrences

The collection of fish at the NTNU University Museum dates back to the 1860's. The collection contains both freshwater and marine fish. Almost all of the objects are preserved on ethanol. The marine part of the collection is small and dates back to when there were research on marine fish at the museum, corresponding with when exploration and mapping of marine environments in central Norway started, initially the Trondheimsfjord, but later also coastal areas outside the fjord. The freshwater part of the collection is larger and dates mainly from late 1960's and up to today. This part of the collection contains mainly of anadromous salmonid species (Salmo salar and Salmo trutta, 65 % of the total fish collection). This is mainly due to the museum being involved in numerous projects investigating the effects of Norwegian freshwater systems being used for hydropower production. Todays collection covers most of the species found in the coastal areas and freshwater systems of central Norway. It contains a total of 248 species. The geographic coverage of the objects in this collection is mainly Norwegian mainland, Svalbard and Jan Mayen. Within Norway mainland the majority of objects collected origins from central Norway. 6,416 occurrences

This dataset is the databased part of the Araneae from the terrestrial arthopods collections of the Muséum national d'Histoire naturelle (Paris). The spider collection of the Museum is amongst the most important in the world (along with those of London and New York). The specimens come from around the world. They are mainly preserved in 75% alcohol in glass jars with some preparations on microscope slides. All specimens whether or not the types are located in two places: a large general reserve of the Museum, the zoothèque, and a smaller reserve in a research building. About 26,000 species of spiders, some 12,000 types (mixed in the entire collection) are represented in the Museum. This represents a number of individuals estimated to be approximately 2 million. Started in the 1860s by Eugène SIMON, the collection has grown significantly over the years with substantial collections in number of specimens (including a large part of the material remaining to be studied and identified) from other arachnologists or naturalists, among them Bonnet, Denis, Dresco Legendre or Strand ... This collection has a predominantly scientific vocation. It grows with some specimens to several hundred per year with donations mainly from current collections. The main domains of research activity related to this collection are systematic, with two major axes, taxonomy and biosystematics, but also applications in the management of biodiversity and the environment as well as expertise. The loan service of the collection is of great importance each year along with hosting of visitors and sending material. Databasing began in the 2000s. Are currently integrated into the general database of the Museum some 3,000 lots spiders. The sources of information related to this collection are also based on manual files easily available to visitors and on a library with historical reference books as well as most recent reprints. 2,859 occurrences

The aim is to provide a general view of the echinoderm collection of the Paris Museum, which is primarily a scientific collection. The naturalist Jean-Baptiste Lamarck, one of the founders of the Theory of Evolution, was the first to really establish the collection of echinoderms at the Paris Museum. There are both dry and alcohol-preserved lots. Some sea cucumber specimens are preserved as microscopic preparations on slides. The number of lots is estimated at 500,000, of which 0.4% are types. Echinoderms have been collected in all oceans, at all latitudes. The largest numbers of specimens were collected relatively recently in the Indo-West Pacific. Echinoderms live exclusively in marine waters and at all depths. For 25 years intensive research programs have permitted huge collections to be obtained, especially from the Indo-Pacific and Antarctic regions. Most of the data entered so far are from these regions. 40,860 occurrences

A Coleção de Culturas de Bactérias de Origem Hospitalar (CCBH) situa-se no Laboratório de Infecção Hospitalar (LAPIH), que realiza análise bacteriológica, epidemiológica e molecular de cepas bacterianas oriundas de infecção hospitalar. As culturas bacterianas mantidas na CCBH são originárias de surtos hospitalares de várias regiões do Brasil, e representam um acervo de grande importância para a sociedade em geral. Nessa coleção estão preservadas cerca de 5.000 cepas de bactérias representativas de 30 espécies distintas, dentre as mais freqüentes citam-se: Staphylococcus aureus meticilino resistente (MRSA), Klebsiella pneumoniae, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Acinetobacter baumannii e Enterobacter aerogenes, isoladas de casos de septicemias, meningites, pneumonias entre outros. Estas bactérias estão disponíveis gratuitamente, são apenas fornecidas para pesquisa, a diversas instituições públicas e privadas, nacionais e internacionais. A coleção realiza diversos serviços tais como: a manutenção, preservação, depósito e fornecimento de culturas, caracterização taxonômica e análise genotípica. A CCBH conta com o apoio da FINEP, FAPERJ e CNPq, sendo filiada à World Federation for Culture Collections, WFCC, sob o registro WDCM 947.
