At this time of year, sumac leaves are wonderfully colourful. This shrub grows in N. America as well as other regions in the world. The leaves and fruit on the right were collected behind @AcadiaU in Nova Scotia in 1976. (If there are still sumacs on campus, send us a pic!)

This is Red Peat Moss (Sphagnum rubellum). On the right is a specimen in our herbarium from the Charter Community of K’asho Got’ine, or Fort Good Hope, on the Mackenzie River. For centuries, humans have used sphagnum (peat moss) for preserving food, dressing wounds, and more.

This duck-billed dinosaur skull was collected 100 years ago by the renowned fossil hunter Charles H. Sternberg. Originally named Thespesius saskatchewanensis, further scientific study a decade ago revealed it to be a young Edmontosaurus annectens. #FossilFriday

Hi, I’m Dr. Jean-Marc Gagnon. I’m a deep-water #marineinvertebrates expert and Chief Scientist @MuseumofNature. I’ve managed the museum’s invertebrate collection for over 27 years so. Send me your question for #AskaCuratorDay

Today is both @AskACurator Day and the @inspiration4x launch day, so if you want to geek out in excitement over the mission or have any botany questions I'll be over here.

Good morning! Happy #AskaCuratorDay. One thing I love most about my role as Botany Curator @museumofnature is the chance to help people find answers to their questions...somewhere in our 250+ year archive of over one million preserved plants and lichens. Have a good day all!

Sometimes scientists find a new species, even decades after collecting the specimen. Ask me about this “cryptic” species I found. #AskaCuratorDay @museumofnature

100 years ago in 1921, fossil hunter Charlie M. Sternberg collected a complete #Edmontosaurus skeleton from (what is now) #GrasslandsNationalPark in SW #Sask. Last week, we visited the quarry with @Jordan_Mallon of the @MuseumofNature. @royalsaskmuseum #dinosaur @ParksCanada_SK

I've been spending #FossilFriday in @MuseumofNature collections studying some more of their hadrosaur material. Here's a beautiful skull of a juvenile #Gryposaurus compared with just the frontal and parietal of a full-grown individual. It's astonishing how much these guys grew!
