The mammal collection of the Accademia dei
Fisiocritici (Siena) was revised. It includes 665 specimens,
belonging to 138 species.
The old part of the collection (217 samples) was obtained between
1800 and 1935; the other samples were recently collected (1970-1995).
Most specimens of the collection belong to the Italian fauna.
The bone collection of Apennine Chamois (Rupicapra pyrenaica
ornata) and that of Cetaceans, mainly from the Tyrrhenian
Sea, have a particular relevance.
