Why do we need natural history museum collections? The millions of specimens contained in the six natural history museums at UC Berkeley have provided the building blocks of data from which scores of researchers have described new species, unraveled complicated kinships among organisms, and discovered how organisms evolve and adapt to their environments. Go behind the scenes in the Essig Entomology Museum, the Museum of Vertebrate Zoology, and the Jepson and University Herbaria to discover amazing treasures of biodiversity.

RSVP is needed to attend-- register here.
