Wilson Localities (Collected or Examined)
Wilson, his lab and collaborators collected or worked with specimens/material collected from numerous locations. These locations were mainly in the United States, but also from other countries. Most of theses specimens from these localities are now in the L. R. Wilson Paleobotany and Micropaleontology Collection, Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History, Norman, Oklahoma, United States. However, some are in other repositories (usually either a museum or university collection).
We use the following abbreviations in describing the repository/collection that the specimens/material are owned and stored:
OMNH = L. R. Wilson Paleobotany and Micropaleontology Collection, Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History, Norman, Oklahoma, United States
Note: Abbreviations are the same as those listed in The Global Registry of Biodiversity Repositories (GRBio) unless no registered abbreviation or collection code was listed which are noted.
Some localities have multiple repositories listed. This means that additional material/collections from the same location/area that Wilson and his lab collected or worked with was deposited elsewhere. For the purposes of this locality list they are listed as the same location. On specific locality pages details as known or discovered on which specimens from these localities Wilson, his lab and his collaborators published on or indicated in notes at the various repositories will be provided, acknowledging the fact that they were associated with their research. This list does not include localities for specimens for which we do not have enough information to place to a specific location, outcrop or mine.
Before any sorting, we list the locations alphabetically in this order: county (except United States is listed first), state/providence, county, locality name. The columns are sortable by clicking on the heading. The first click to a heading sorts them alphabetically (A to Z)/numerically (1-25). The second click to heading sorts them reverse alphabetically (Z to A)/numerically (25-1). The third click to heading brings back to original sort order.
We are aware that Wilson, his students and his collaborators collected or worked with specimens/material from the locations listed in the table.
If you are aware of any additional localities regardless of where they are redeposited please share them in the Collection Forum or contact us to let us know.
