Texas A&M University has crafted this unique and wonderful collection of materials for use by the scientific community and anyone else with an interest in natural history and other matters. The collections here are maintained by staff and faculty at the Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Sciences and they are updated on a regular basis. On the site, the Collections area contains separate links to thematic collections such as Fishes, Mammals, Parasites, and Genetic Resources. Each of these areas includes details about the collection, along with a link to the relevant database which contains detailed records about each specimen. The Database Search is a one-stop shop where visitors can perform detailed searches across all of the databases. Before leaving the site, News and Happenings is worth a visit, as it contains information about ongoing research activities, seminars, and outreach efforts.
