The Bavarian Natural History Collections (Staatliche Naturwissenschaftliche Sammlungen Bayerns, SNSB) are a research institution for natural history in Bavaria. They encompass five State Collections (zoology, botany, paleontology and geology, mineralogy, anthropology and paleoanatomy), the Botanical Garden Munich-Nymphenburg and eight museums with public exhibitions in Munich, Bamberg, Bayreuth, Eichstätt and Nördlingen. Our research focuses mainly on the past and present bio- and geodiversity and the evolution of animals and plants. To achieve this we have large scientific collections (almost 35,000,000 specimens), see "joint projects".
Datasets of Bavarian Natural History Collections (SNSB) and datasets hosted by the SNSB are published via Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF) and German Federation for Biological Data (GFBio). ABCD standard is used on a regular basis. DC and EML standard is used for certain checklist datasets processed for GBIF; see https://www.tdwg.org/standards/
