Osteological preparation techniques I. Preparation for the mounting of the skeleton of a small mammal. Journal of Science and Technology, 5 1 ages unknown. Osteological preparation techniques used by the zooarchaeological identification center. Faber, ed. Describes use of dermestids, maceration, and boiling. Suggests use of cheesecloth to cover specimens in colony and to slow drying of large bones to prevent cracking, freezing skeletons to kill larvae, and warns against sensitization to bug dust.
Glosses over enzyme maceration methods and does not identify the chemical used. The sclerotic ring in North American birds. Classic work on this subject outlining value of the sclerotic ring in the completed skeleton and stressing preservation of this element. Abrams, and L. Assembling avian and small animal skeletons by using a chemical aid. A method for cleaning skulls of specimens preserved in alcohol.
Skulls are kept in running water for two days, dried for about an hour, brushed with liquid grease made of warmed bacon and beef fat, and force-fed to dermestids in jars or aquaria.
