The Museum’s scientists analyze specimens collected in the field and donated to the Museum. Our biologists study the relationships between organisms and their environmental adaptations. Our anthropologists study the artifacts of ancient and contemporary societies, and the remains of our distant ancestors to learn about human culture and evolution. Our geologists study the formation and processes of the planet.
Museum researchers today study specimens and artifacts using high–tech scanning equipment and DNA analysis. As new technologies develop, specimens collected in the past can provide unexpected information.
