Insects Collection


The insect collection is composed primarily of the renown Lucien Harris, Jr. Lepidoptera collection, which was the basis for the Butterflies of Georgia. Of the approximately 4,000 specimens housed at Tall Timbers, 1,388 have had high-resolution images collected as part of the Imaging the Tall Timbers Biological Collections project, and images can be viewed online at the Morphbank Online Database.


Tall Timbers Research Station Scientific Collections
is supported in honor of Howard Melville and Jean Claire Hanna
by their grandchildren. For more information about the scientific collections, contact Jim Cox.
