Summary:
This accession consists of the "Cerro Ballena" website as it existed on June 16, 2014. Cerro Ballena is a unique paleontological site located in the Atacama Region of Chile. In 2010, paleontologists discovered a rich fossil site containing dozens of whale skeletons, along with the remains of other extinct marine mammals and other marine vertebrates. In 2011, paleontologists from Chile and the United States conducted rapid documentation and digitization of this site. This website provides information about the site and the project which was led by Nicholas D. Pyenson, Research Geologist in the National Museum of Natural History, Department of Paleobiology. The Digitization Program Office within the Smithsonian Institution, Office of the Chief Information Officer, provided three-dimensional digitization support for the project. Data from the digitization is not included in this accession. Materials are in electronic format.

Category:

Notes:
Kjell Bloch Sandved of the Office of Exhibits, National Museum of Natural History (NMNH), at the commission of Porter Kier, then Director, NMNH, prepared these photographic materials to document personnel and activities of NMNH in 1975.
For other images of Frank Greenwell, see Negatives SIA2013-03955 through SIA2013-03960.
Summary:
In the Collection Storage area of the National Museum of Natural History, a close-up of Frank Greenwell is standing beside a whale skull, which is being held in a frame in an upright position, that he is working on its preservation and storage. Other support frames can also be seen in the background.
Greenwell joined the staff of the Smithsonian in 1957, and soon found himself part of the team that prepared the Fénykövi Elephant for exhibition. His work did not keep him solely in the taxidermy studio. Greenwell went on scientific expeditions all over the world-collecting everything from a tiny shrew to the skulls of twelve gray whales. Later, Greenwell found that he preferred to capture the natural world with a camera and developed his skills as a nature photographer.

Abstract:
Knowledge of mammalian diversity is still surprisingly disparate, both regionally and taxonomically. Here, we present a comprehensive assessment of the conservation status and distribution of the world's mammals. Data, compiled by 1700+ experts, cover all 5487 species, including marine mammals. Global macroecological patterns are very different for land and marine species but suggest common mechanisms driving diversity and endemism across systems. Compared with land species, threat levels are higher among marine mammals, driven by different processes (accidental mortality and pollution, rather than habitat loss), and are spatially distinct (peaking in northern oceans, rather than in Southeast Asia). Marine mammals are also disproportionately poorly known. These data are made freely available to support further scientific developments and conservation action.
