There’s a whole world behind the scenes at natural history museums that most people never see — millions upon millions of dinosaur bones, pickled sharks, dried leaves, and every other part of the natural world. These specimens are used in research by scientists trying to understand how different kinds of life evolved and how we can protect them. A study shows how scientists are using digital records of all these specimens in their research.
