Base de datos de fósiles de invertebrados en internet

Se puede consultar por internet la base de datos de los ejemplares fósiles de invertebrados depositados en la Paleontological Research Institution (EE.UU.). Esta colección tiene casí 15.000 ejemplares fundamentalmente de moluscos cenozoicos. Se pueden hacer búsquedas múltiples. Os adjuntamos la información que nos ha llegado

The Paleontological Research Institution is in the final phases of the computerization of its Type and Figured Specimen Collection. This NSF-funded project has resulted in the creation of an online database of one of the largest and most important invertebrate paleontology type collections in the United States. This portion of PRI's collections contains more than 14,800 specimens, with a major focus on Cenozoic molluscs. The collection also includes most of the types formerly in the Cornell University invertebrate fossil collection, which were transferred to PRI during the 1970s. Many of the specimens included in the database are published in PRI’s flagship journal, Bulletins of American Paleontology (the oldest paleontological periodical in the United States). The new PRI Collections database homepage www.pricollectionsdatabase.org provides detailed information about the types deposited in the Collection. Locality, stratigraphic, and publication information of each individual type can be accessed online as well as images of the primary types and their original labels. We are also pleased to announce that we are now part of Paleoportal, http://www.paleoportal.org, which enables us to
integrate our online specimen data with those of other major collections

Saludos cordiales.
Muy interesante y divulgativo su blog. Por mi parte he iniciado uno: www.biogeos.blogspot.com con información sobre bioestratigrafía.
