About NPL

The Crew

Permanent Staff

Research Fellows

Research Assistants



Current activities in the non-vertebrate collections involve many people. At this time, however, permanent staffing is critically low and this lab is made functional only because of the dedicated support of research fellows, student assistants, interns and volunteers.

Support staff of TNSC are critical to the NPL unit. This is especially true in the area of computers where NPL is heavily reliant upon a reliable network environment with regular backups and security updates.

Funding comes from a limited TNSC budget, 'soft' money from grants and endowments, and donations.
