Other Recent Collections
Recent (i.e.: non-fossil) specimens are an important part of the collections.
They allow us to compare living (extant) forms with their fossil relatives. Hence the term 'Recent comparative collections'
They also enable us to track the effects of recent environmental changes on biodiversity.
