shells project Overview

This shell photo archive was made possible by the donation of the Holman Seashell Collection to the Department of Marine and Environmental Systems at the Florida Institute of Technology. Donated by Diane Holman in loving memory of Robert and Martha Holman and their fondness of the ocean, it is hoped that this photo archive and digital database will benefit scientists, educators, and collectors. While the original Holman collection forms the core of shells displayed here, specimens are regularly being added to the collection with a particular focus on Florida regional species.
