The photographs made available here are in high resolution. Several shots are provided for the same anatomical element with a size scale. These images are intended to be used freely by the community of archaeozoologists to help them in their determination work. To help us develop this virtual reference collection, please provide us with photographs of skeletons and skeletal elements from your own collections. You can also provide us with photographs of teeth, shells, insects, etc.
Skeletons in connection
Skeletons in connection
Drawings in vector format of skeletons in connection intended to illustrate your scientific work provided to mention their references and copyright, such information is given at the bottom of each drawing. Individuals or institutions wishing to use them in a broader context - publication, exhibition, movie, event or educational output - are invited to contact us.
They are downloadable in PDF (compatible with Adobe Illustrator and various DTP software) and PNG formats.
We try to enrich this section regularly from anatomical drawings found in publications and vectorized by Michel Coutureau and colleagues or, from your own production. To help us develop this section, don’t hesitate to send us also your drawings. You can also send us copies or references of publication offering the same type of illustration that we could vectorize well and make available to all.
