Aves 3D

Aves 3D is an online database of three-dimensional digital surface models of avian skeletal morphology produced by the  College of the Holy Cross and Harvard University, in partnership with the National Science Foundation. New scans are added on a weekly basis to 'to provide as wide of a representation of living and extinct bird species as possible'.

It's free to use and easy to browse under the following headings:

  • Cladogram;

  • Scientific Name;

  • Common Name;

  • Skeletal Element;

  • Temporal Interval;

  • Geographical Location;

  • Specimen Number.

For more information have a look at the About section and frequently asked questions.
