A Night at the Museum (of Vertebrates) [video]

New self-paced course: Learn How to Identify Bird Songs, Click to Learn More

The best natural history collections are vibrant, dynamic places that reveal new insights into the workings of the natural world. Join Vanya Rohwer and Casey Dillman, curators of the Cornell University Museum of Vertebrates (CUMV), to learn how natural history collections are used to teach, conserve, and inspire new ideas. The lecture takes place in the auditorium as usual, but we also get a special behind-the-scenes peek at the specimens and spaces of the CUMV.

The talk took place on February 5, 2018. It is part of the Cornell Lab’s long-running Monday Night Seminar series, a tradition established decades ago by Lab founder Dr. Arthur Allen.
