Ghent University - Zoology Museum - Invertebrate collection

Founded in 1817 the Zoology Museum aimed to assemble a scientific collection of preserved animals to illustrate the zoology courses given at the University of Gent. Nowadays the collection is still used and studied by university students, but on the same time the museum is made more accessible to a larger public. Ghent University Zoology Museum curates a collection of over 7000 invertebrate specimen. This dataset holds all invertebrates in the collection, except the insects and nematodes.
