Aves 3D

Aves 3D is a National Science Foundation funded online database of three-dimensional digital surface models of the various bones that make up the skeleton of birds. Aves 3D aims to provide as wide a representation of living and extinct bird species as possible, and they are adding new scans to the database on a weekly basis. The project is a collaboration between the College of the Holy Cross, Harvard Museum of Comparative Zoology, and Peabody Museum of Natural History.
