History of Ornithology to End of 28th Century. Usually defined in ornithology as an interbreeding group of birds that is reproductively isolated from other such groups. Some universities offer a bachelor’s degree program in zoology, but people can also become zoologists through graduate work. Such experiences allow students to make more informed decisions about their future goals and careers. The Zoology Department at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science houses over 940,000 specimens or specimen lots in five major collections: Arachnology (~55,500 vials); Marine Invertebrates (~17,500 lots); Entomology (862,500+ specimens); Mammalogy (~15,500 specimens); and Ornithology (~54,300 specimens).
