Mammal Collection (Vouchers [Outside of Standard Sampling]) (NEON-MAMC-VOS)

Bionomia dataset badge

This collection contains small mammal vouchers collected opportunistically at NEON sites outside of small mammal sampling activities (NEON sample classes: mam_voucher_in.voucherSampleID.mam). Only mortalities that are found at a NEON site during the course of other NEON sampling activities are included in this collection. The NEON Biorepository receives whole frozen specimens and stores these samples as whole specimens in 70-95% ethanol or as skulls/skeletons. See related links below for protocols and NEON related data products.
