The U.S. National Science Foundation and iDigBio are required to collect information on use of digitized collections-based specimen data. Please help us meet this requirement every time you use this search portal. Sustainability of the national digitization effort depends on evidence of data use! Maybe later.

Wichita State University Collection

Specimen Records: 440
Media Records: 0
iDigBio Last Ingested Date: 2018-06-04

The Wichita State University Biodiversity Laboratory houses the invertebrate collection (WICHI) which contains arthropod specimens that result from regional research (pollination, herbivory, habitat surveys) and international research (primarily Coleoptera: Scarabaeoidea). We aim to make biodiversity data broadly available and assist in research that examines biotic patterns (e.g., insect and host-plant interactions), phylogenetics, spatial distributions, and conservation. Discoveries based on this research assist in documenting the biotic response to climate change, predicting the geographic potential of invasive species, recognizing habitat bio-indicators, among others.
