The natural history collections of the Museum of Biological Diversity in the Department of Ecology, Evolution and Organismal Biology, serve the interests of educators, scientific researchers, and the public. The Tetrapods Collections follow the general policies for the Museum of Biological Diversity at The Ohio State University.

We aspire to answer all reasonable inquiries, and we will make our data available to the fullest extent allowed by the abilities of our staff, equipment, and facilities. Access to data does not imply access to the material items themselves.
