Until recently, no organized collection of invertebrates existed at Auburn. However, due increasing regional interest in the status and ecology of freshwater mollusks we have begun to organize a mollusk research collection. Presently we have accumulated over 1,000 lots primarily consisting of freshwater mussels (Bivalvia: Unionidae) and snails. Because of the exceptionally high mollusk diversity in Alabama (more than in almost any other state), the need to further develop this collection is critical. Recently, significant space became available to house the invertebrate collection in the former Physiology Building. At the present time the collection is in its infancy but we anticipate substantial growth in the coming years. We welcome contributions to the collection and will loan materials to interested parties. For more information on mollusk collections at Auburn please visit the mollusk web site .
