Pre-Dental Students Examine Mammal Specimens

Austin Stebbins, Peter Rick, and Aaron Dalman

This semester, UM Undergraduates, Aaron Dalman (left), Peter Rick (right), and Austin Stebbins (not pictured), began measuring mammal specimens as a part of a research project with their mentor, Dr. Geoff Gerstner of the Michigan School of Dentistry.  As part of their project, these students have examined specimens from a variety of species found within the UMMZ Mammal Collection to obtain a large portion of their data.  In total, they will examine nearly 240 specimens, encompassing most of the diversity within mammals.  In this picture, Aaron and Peter examine a hippotamus (Hippopotamus amphibius) skull on the afternoon prior to their Spring Break!!!
