MCZ Destructive Sampling Policy

The MCZ Destructive Sampling Policy is a museum-wide policy that outlines the approval of research (including loans) involving procedures that result in the permanent removal of material from an MCZ specimen. Individual collections may have more stringent guidelines pertaining to destructive and invasive sampling. For more information, inquiries should be made to the appropriate departmental collection.
