Cambrian and Devonian invertebrate collections at the Milwaukee Public Museum

Extract

The Milwaukee Public Museum has recently completed the computerized curation of its Cambrian and Devonian invertebrate fossil collections. This notice is intended to alert the paleontological community of the availability of these collections for study. The curation was supported by the Biological Research Resources Program of the National Science Foundation. The Cambrian and Devonian collections have approximately 87,000 specimens from 1,977 localities. Isolated specimens were counted directly, but counts of multiple specimens on slabs are conservative. Thus, the number of specimens represents a minimum number of fossils and more careful counting of material on slabs will increase the total.
