Natural Sciences

The biology and geology collections in our care have three specific functions:

  • To provide specimens which can be used as an aid to inform people about important issues relating to the biodiversity and geological history of Hampshire and the complex biological and geological processes involved
  • To provide evidence for the biodiversity and geological history of Hampshire
  • To provide reference material for scientific research and training

If you have any questions about the collections or natural sciences library, wish to visit them or have a collection or specimens you would like to donate, please contact us.



Researchers and specialist groups can look at the collections in store at Chilcomb House by prior appointment.
