The University of Colorado Museum of Natural History houses the largest natural history collection in the Rocky Mountains. Currently, more than four million objects are categorized into five disciplines: Anthropology, Botany, Entomology, Paleontology, and Zoology. The collections include the world's oldest documented Navajo textile, the Aiken bird collection, and Colorado's largest collection of bees. Faculty and staff at the Museum conduct world-class research, using the extensive collections. Some of the current research at the Museum includes algal ecology of lakes and streams, the first colonization of the Americas, and coprolites and dinosaur diets.
