February 2016 Newsletter
February can bring snow storms, blizzards, temperate and cool breezes, rain and even hot winds! Wherever you are, we hope you are doing well. Later this month we will be exhibiting at the American Academy of Forensic Sciences (AAFS) 68th Annual Meeting and look forward to seeing you there.
We developed our newest forensic set specifically to expose students to Introductory Forensic Anthropology. COMP-114 includes twelve osteological specimens, a lesson plan, and a human skeletal features handout. Composed of different ages, sexes, ancestries, and gunshot trauma examples, the set can be used to teach a broad range of concepts in human osteology, biological anthropology, biomechanics and comparative anatomy, and to demonstrate how professional forensic anthropologists create a 'biological profile' for skeletal remains.
We are delighted to continue to expand our Zoology collection with these four bird specimens: two feet and two skulls. These bird casts would be an excellent addition to any nature center, wildlife refuge, veterinary, zoology or ornithology program.
We are always interested to hear what our customers want, and continue to search for significant material to cast, one never knows what new specimens we will be able to offer. Until next time.
