Florida Biodiversity Collection
The Fish and Wildlife Research Institute has three extensive collections which include more than one million cataloged, preserved invertebrates, adult fish, and larval fish. The specimens represent vouchers from biological assessment studies. Scientists use these collections as guides as they identify animals collected during research, as sources for research material, or for educational exhibits.
Florida Biodiversity Collection (FBC) staff members maintain these research and reference collections and associated databases.
