Worms Collection


Most of the Tall Timbers-Gordon Gates worm collection (15 drums containing thousands of specimens) was transferred to the Smithsonian Institution in 1989. This collection had many type specimens and was developed through research conducted in the early 1970s. The remaining collection at Tall Timbers has been entered into EXCEL (WORMS.XLS).
