Dean W. Taylor's investigation of California Geological Survey Specimens

Since Dean Taylor passed away in 2020, these data are to be considered archived and will not be regularly updated.

Please note that this database used to display specimens from CAS, DS, RSA and POM. However, since the creation of CCH2, the accession numbers of these collections have changed to barcodes. As a result, the accession in Dean's database no longer link to specimens. In the future, Dean's database will be updated to link his notes to the corrected CCH2 accession numbers for these records.
