Most of the material is preserved as dry skins, nests and eggs, although a small portion (mainly nestlings) in alcohol 70%. There are specimens from several Brazilian regions (mainly Southeast, Central West and the Atlantic coast of Northeast), which are the result of several projects and researches conducted by the faculty and students of the Zoology Department since the 70's. The collection is being digitalized and managed through the MS-Access data bank manager. Most of the material is organized as a scientific collection, destined to ornithological research and accessible to professionals and students as well. Part of the material composes a collection destined to educational purpose, whose specimens are available for lending and teaching.
