    Department of Vertebrate Zoology
    Inverted radiograph of Lookdowns, Selene vomer
    Vertebrate Zoology is the study of animals with backbones. Research in the department covers fishes amphibians, reptiles birds , and mammals . The department holds the largest collection of vertebrate specimens in the world, including historically important collections from the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Research in the department provides a solid foundation of understanding for government agencies, conservation organizations, and individuals involved in fish and wildlife management. Zoologists from two other federal agencies work so closely with colleagues and specimens at the Museum that they are permanently stationed in the building. Specialists from the National Marine Fisheries Service of the U.S. Department of Commerce focus primarily on commercially important fishes, while those from the Geological Survey of the U.S. Department of the Interior

Otophryne robusta frog in Venezuela The Division of Vertebrate Zoology comprises four departments: Herpetology (reptiles and amphibians), Ichthyology (fishes), Mammalogy (mammals, including primates), and Ornithology (birds). Each Department maintains separate collections, curators, and support staff, but the Departments collaborate on issues including policy and recruitment, collection databasing, and library and archives management. The Departments also share a common skeleton preparation laboratory (supervised by the Department of Mammalogy) and a molecular systematics laboratory (supervised by the Department of Ornithology).
Painted ringtail (Pseudochirulus forbesi) in Papua New Guinea The Division currently hosts approximately a dozen Ph.D. students enrolled in joint programs with Columbia University and the City University of New York. These students typically complete their coursework at their home university and conduct dissertation research at the Museum under the direction of Division curators. Postdoctoral researchers, typically supported for two years of study, pursue their own research projects using Division collections and Museum laboratory facilities. BACK TO TOP
Black-eared shrike babbler (Pteruthius melanotis) in Vietnam The Division of Vertebrate Zoology houses one of the largest collections of vertebrate animals in the world. It has approximately 3.5 million specimens, which range from whales to bats, catfish to coelacanths, rattlesnakes to treefrogs, and hummingbirds to ostriches. Most specimens are preserved in alcohol, or as dry skins or skeletons. The Division also maintains collections of approximately 15,000 tissue samples for DNA and other genetic and biochemical analyses.

  • Levels of organization in animal complexity Protoplasmic grade of organization
    unicellular organisms such as protozoa, unicellular algae, bacteria, and unicellular fungi. Cellular grade
    aggregation of cells that are functionally differentiated. Division of labor is evident (e.g. reproduction vs. vegetative growth); protozoan colonies, colonial unicellular algae such as Volvox spp., and some lower invertebrates such as metazoans (sponges). Cell-tissue grade
    aggregation of similar cells into definite patterns or layers, thus becoming a tissue (e.g. jellyfish). Tissue-organ grade
    aggregation of tissues into organs (e.g. flatworms). Organ-system grade
    when organs work together to perform a related function; highest level of organization (e.g. organisms ranging from ribbon worms to vertebrates). Patterns of Animal Development
    Developmental terminology.

    Specimen and archival collections of the Museum of vertebrate zoology, University of California, Berkeley.
    T he MVZ collections form the core of the Museum’s research, conservation, and education programs. The collections, which number approximately 630,000 specimens, constitute a unique and permanent record of the past and present distributions of many terrestrial vertebrate species. Taxonomic and geographic representation of specimens reflects current and past research interests of the Museum’s faculty, staff, and students. The historic emphasis on collecting series of specimens that serve as the bases for studies in evolution, morphology, behavior, ecology, and population genetics continues to the present. T he Museum also houses a collection of over 40,000 tissue samples for use in molecular analyses. The majority of these were taken in conjunction with voucher specimens which can be referred to for verification of results. C omplementing these collections is an extensive archive of photographs, correspondence, and field notebooks that date to the Museum’s founding in 1908. These materials contain information about specimens and changing environmental conditions, primarily in California and the western United States, that is not recorded on specimen labels or catalog cards.

    Mr. Arthur Clark The vertebrate collections include the Dr. R. C. Bothner Collection (over 950 jars of reptiles and amphibians) from St. Bonaventure University in Olean, NY, and the Dr. J. J. Reedy Collection (over 700 study skins, fluid-preserved specimens and skeletons) from Niagara University. The fish collection includes the Dr. W. F. Hadley Collection, a large (approx. 1100 jars) collection of fish from the State University of New York at Buffalo and smaller collections of voucher specimens from the Corps of Engineers. Birds comprise the largest collection in the division. Bird collections acquired over the years include specimens from the estate of K. B. Mathes, the commercial collectors F. B. Webster and F. E. Johnson, the E. Michael Purchase, the G. F. Guelf Collection purchase, the C. K. Worthen Collection, and specimens from H. L. Stoddard, Sr. Noteworthy scientific collections include 70 study skins collected in Veracruz, Mexico by Dr. R. F. Andrle and 71 study skins collected in Guyana by R. S. Singh et al.. The Museum sponsored Spaulding-Barrett African Expeditions to Kenya in 1967 and Mozambique in 1969 brought back 322 birds from Kenya and 43 birds from Mozambique (lists published in a Museum bulletin). Bird specimens from the collections along with field observations are the basis for Birds of the Niagara Frontier Region, the definitive regional work published in 1965.

    Data Use Agreement
    The goals and principles of making biodiversity data openly and universally available have been defined in the Memorandum of Understanding on GBIF, paragraph 8 (see the relevant excerpts in the attached Annex). The Participants who have signed the MoU have expressed their willingness to make biodiversity data available through their nodes to foster scientific research development internationally and to support the public use of these data. GBIF data sharing should take place within a framework of due attribution. Therefore, using data available through the GBIF network requires agreeing with the following:
    1. Data Use Agreements
  • The quality and completeness of data cannot be guaranteed. Users employ these data at their own risk. Users shall respect restrictions of access to sensitive data. In order to make attribution of use for owners of the data possible, the identifier of ownership of data must be retained with every data record. Users must publicly acknowledge, in conjunction with the use of the data, the data providers whose biodiversity data they have used. Data providers may require additional attribution of specific collections within their institution.
