We’d like to Welcome Angelo State Natural History Collections into Arctos!

The Biology Department maintains the Angelo State Natural History Collections, which contains nearly 150,000 specimens of all types of living organisms. The collections are preserved, documented and curated assemblages that are important to a wide array of human activities.
The collections are essential to the management of natural resources because they document the diversity and biology of organisms that impact agriculture, health, and urban and other rural activities. They also characterize the ecosystems that we all depend on.
The collections are a resource for many fields of biological research. The presence and growth of the collections at ASU are important to the university, San Angelo and the Concho Valley because they are a readily available local resource for the region.
Interested in joining Arctos or know a collection that is looking for an amazing collection management solution? Have them contact the Arctos Working Group at arctos-working-group@googlegroups.com.
