1065 Projects

Media are grouped by projects created by users. Projects tend to contain media tied together by a theme. A project might represent the dataset for a single peer-reviewed paper, the results of a collections digitization project, or data for a digital lesson plan.

Projects can be used to share media ownership and access between project members, and projects can also be used to publish assortments of media and specimens for access and discovery by the public. If you want to share media ownership and access with multiple users across multiple projects, consider creating a user team. Projects can be managed by teams, and users with access to that team also gain access to any projects managed by that team.

Display all details of oMeso PEN This project is a collection of squamate and amphibian specimens scanned at the University of Colorado Materials Instrumentation and Multimodal Imaging Core (MIMIC) Facility in collaboration with the University of Colorado Museum of Natural History (UCM) and funded by the US National Science Foundation (NSF). The oMeso project is an NSF Partner to an Existing Network (PEN) award to the University of Colorado Museum of Natural History to join the openVertebrate (oVert) Thematic Content Network. oMeso employs 2D and 3D specimen imaging technologies to facilitate exploration of structural and functional diversity in Mesoamerican reptiles and amphibians. The unique ecology and geology of Mesoamerica has fostered the rapid evolution of multiple species adapted for a variety of habitats and life modes. Computed tomography (CT) scans of internal anatomy paired with high resolution photos of external traits provide complimentary image datasets to create an accessible resource for one of the world’s most hyperdiverse regions.See linked occurance records to view 2D images hosted on the iDigBio portal. 682 609

Display all details of Oltet River Valley The Olteţ River Valley (ORV) Project is focused on providing paleoenvironmental and geological context to the early Pleistocene of Eurasia, specifically fossil sites from the Olteţ River Valley of Romania. This time period and region is marked by significant climatic, environmental, and faunal shifts and is the time during which Homo first appears in the Eurasian fossil record. Since 2012 our research team (led by Claire Terhune (University of Arkansas), Sabrina Curran (Ohio University), and Alexandru Petculescu (“Emil Racoviţă” Institute of Speleology)) has been working to update and revise the taxonomy and biochronology for sites in the Olteţ River Valley. One of these sites, Grăunceanu, is one of the most fossiliferous deposits from the early Pleistocene of Eastern Europe. Models included in this project stem from the following publications: Terhune CE, Curran S, Croitor R, Dragusin V, Gaudin T, Petculescu A, Robinson C, Robu M, Werdelin L. 2020. Early Pleistocene fauna of the Olteţ River Valley of Romania: Biochronological and biogeographic implications. Quaternary International 553, 14-33.

Display all details of The Arene Candide 3D database Arene Candide is a large cave system accessed 90 m above current sea level on the slopes of Monte Caprazoppa, Finale Ligure, Italy. The site has been renowned since the latter half of the 19th century for the archaeological richness of its Holocene layers but it was only from the 1940s that its Pleistocene sequence came under investigation. Under the direction of Luigi Cardini and Luigi Bernabò Brea, several excavations occurred during 1940-42, 1948-50, and 1970-72. More recently, a series of excavation campaigns took place between 2008 and 2011 under the direction of J. Riel-Salvatore and R. Maggi. During the 1940-1942 excavation, several Late Upper Paleolithic burials and secondary deposits of human bones were unearthed. An additional burial was found in 1970, and, in 2011, a human bone (a talus) was found. Arene Candide now represents one of the most important sites for the understanding of the peopling of the Mediterranean in the Pleistocene and early Holocene. Our study aimed to gain new insights into Late Upper Paleolithic funerary behavior through the osteological and spatial analysis of those skeletal elements (Sparacello et al., 2018). We cataloged the entire assemblage, and performed surface 3D scans of several skeletal elements, including all elements in secondary deposit. This will allow researchers to verify the attributions based on articulation, size and morphology of the skeletal elements in secondary deposit. Surface scans were taken using the structured light scanner DAVID® SLS-2 (DAVID Group 2007-2015). Soprintendenza Archeologia, Belle Arti e Paesaggio per la città metropolitana di Genova e le province di Imperia, La Spezia e Savona authorized this study on skeletal material belonging to the Italian State. Data collection took place in three museums: Museo di Archeologia Ligure (Genova), Museo Archeologico del Finale (Finale Ligure), and Museo di Antropologia e Etnologia - Sistema Museale dell' Università di Firenze (Firenze). The collaboration of these institutions was fundamental for the success of the research. Literature: Sparacello VS, Rossi S, Pettitt P, Roberts CA, Riel-Salvatore J, Formicola V. 2018.
