EPICC is a partnership of nine natural history museums, united to digitize marine invertebrate fossils found in the eastern Pacific. The bivalves, gastropods, crabs, echinoids and other invertebrates found in our collections span the last 66 million years of Earth’s history. During the course of the grant we will make 1.6 million specimen records available online through digital data and photographs. We are funded through the National Science Foundation’s Advancing Digitization of Biological Collections program and affiliated with Integrated Digitized Biocollections (iDigBio).
