DRC Science Community iconDRC icon

Science Community at the DRC. A Digital Resource Commons (DRC) community containing three collections:

Bird Sounds from the Borror Laboratory of Bioacoustics,

The Borror Laboratory houses one of the largest collections of recorded animal sounds in the world. Founded by the late Dr. Donald Borror, Professor of Entomology and Zoology at The Ohio State University, the collection contains more than 30,000 recordings of over 1000 species of animals.

Dolphin Embryo Microscopic Slides,

Dolphin Embryo Digitized Slides are scanned images of histological sections, captured using a digital camera connected to a microscope. Embryos were made available by the Los Angeles County Museum. The goal behind these sections is to allow researchers and others to be able to see each section individually to study histological embryology as well as use a group of images to see changes within tissues.

Forestry Images,

This collection includes 5000 forestry images from Ohio State University. Ohio Agricultural Experiment Station Forestry Image Collection is a collection of photos of forestry, dating back to the early 20th century. Images portray trees, cultivation, care, and the effects of human activity. Many pictures were taken in Ohio but other states and countries are also represented.
