The data are all linked to museum specimens, and much of our work involves collecting, handling preserved specimens, cataloging them and making the data available. Thus anyone with an interest in Natural History Museum Collections and the Information Science related to data management and serving data to the world can also make valuable contributions via work in our collections.
Though our project is focused on Texas and its rivers and other aquatic habitats, our database and museum collection include records from all adjacent states and northern Mexico.

Now that you've used EUREKA to identify a project of interest to you, read about getting involved in research at The University of Texas at Austin.
The Office of Undergraduate Research recommends that you attend an info session before contacting faculty members or project contacts about research opportunities. We'll cover the steps to getting involved, tips for contacting faculty, funding possibilities, and options for course credit.
If you aren't able to attend an info session, contact the Office of Undergraduate Research to schedule an appointment with an advisor.
Once you have attended an Office of Undergraduate Research info session or spoken to an advisor, you can use the "Contact Details" for this project to get in touch with the project leader and express your interest in getting involved.
