Uses of the Museum

Natural history museums are irreplaceable records of the history of life, and used for addressing countless scientific questions. For example, almost everything we know about the diet of many species has been ascertained by analysis of stomach contents of museum specimens. Here at UW-Green Bay, the collections are used extensively in taxon-based courses such as Ornithology, Mammalogy, and Ichthyology. Several art and design courses also use the collection for drawing models and design inspiration.
