    Welcome to The Fossil Forum Collections! This section is intended to be a database for our members to archive and document fossil specimens in their collections. It will help our community turn their personal collections into a useful database for fossil identification. A virtual museum, of sorts. In addition, Collections will also serve to educate those new to paleontology about the importance of proper research and documentation.


    The amateur community has always played a vital role in the science of paleontology.  That impact cannot be overstated.  As an example, our members have donated countless significant fossils for academic study.  Some of these fossils were determined to be undescribed, new species; others added new knowledge of unknown morphology or distribution.  Odds are, many of us have very important specimens within our collections, and we may not realize it.  So, we hope you take advantage of the Collections archive and contribute to our mutual understanding of the past.
