Abstract:© [2020] de l’article pertany a l’autor o autors.In this article we present the osteological collection of extant birds curated at the Institut Mediterrani d’Estudis Avançats (IMEDEA, CSIC-UIB). This collection is part of the general vertebrate collection of the IMEDEA. It includes 2,330 specimens available via GBIF and Taxo&Map. The collection consists of complete, near complete, and partially disarticulated skeletons, all preserved dry. The specimens are from various sources: collections, donations and exchanges. Most specimens were prepared at IMEDEA. All the records we present here have been reviewed and georeferenced for publication. The collection includes 411 species from 83 families, most of them from the Western Palearctic.
