A Virtual Museum on the State's Fish Biodiversity

Institutions Contributing Data

All data donors and associated information are listed below. Institution codons conform to the American Society of Ichthyologists and Herpetologists' (Sabaj Pérez, 2010) accepted codons except in rare instances for those institutions that requested that we use different codons. Note that many institutions have subsumed smaller collections during their histories and thus this list indirectly includes many more collections. The TNHC, for example, has acquired and subsumed collections formerly at University of Texas Marine Science Institute (UTMSI), Midwestern State University (MWSU), Texas Tech University (TTU), Texas A&M University at Kingsville (TAIC), The University of Texas at Brownsville (UTB), Lamar University, and continues to acquire additional "orphaned" collections.

For a complete summary of our project's data and status users should look at this table as well as Version Tracking, Data Tracks and What's New.
