Auburn University Museum of Natural History Mollusks

Latest version published by Auburn University Museum DiGIR Provider on Apr 15, 2019 Auburn University Museum DiGIR Provider

The Auburn University Museum of Natural History Mollusk Collection consists of a wide range of taxa from all over the world. Our geographic foci lie in the Southeast U.S., with the great biodiversity of freshwater mussels in Alabama, and in Antarctica. We also have a strong representation of Oceania from two private shell collections donated over the years. The majority of our accessions have been through University research and affiliated persons. The Mollusk Collection contains representatives of most molluskan groups, with a heavy concentration in unionids.
