Texas Natural History Collections

Numerous large collections are used for teaching and research. While focusing on Texas, most are essentially worldwide in scope. Vertebrate holdings include collections of fishes, amphibians, and reptiles. Birds and mammals were transferred to the collections at Texas-Tech. Invertebrate collections include fluid-preserved and dried, pinned insects, as well as cave-dwelling arthropods.
