Collection of items in museums

Arthropod Museum

The Arthropod Museum at the Department of Entomology, Plant Pathology, and Weed Science, began as a small accumulation of insects. They were initially leftover specimens from the days when a collection of arthropods was kept at the then-Department of Botany and Entomology. The specimens are the work of over 100 years of collection and identification, and represent thousands of hours of work by world authorities on many arthropod groups.
