Section of Evolutionary Morphology

Section of Evolutionary Morphology was established in 1932 on the basis of former Institute and Museum of Comparative Anatomy. The main objective of the Section is completion and storage of anatomical specimens of vertebrates. Unlike other sections of the museum, the collections of the present Section are not limited to particular taxa, but rather to specific form of perparation. There are “wet” preparations, skeletons, and micropreparations kept in the Section.

The latter’s office and storage rooms are located on the ground floor of the museum building (room n. 42) at the end of the building’s wing stretching along the Nikitsky lane. When planning to visit the section, please contact its staff by phone 629-39-43.
