University of Alberta E. H. Strickland Entomological Museum (UASM)
University of Alberta MuseumsAcronym: UASM
With preserved insects from around the planet, the E.H. Strickland Entomological Museum is an invaluable resource for researchers, students, and naturalists as it houses over one million specimens. The research collection includes principally Nearctic insects, representing most orders and major families. The beetle family Carabidae is especially well represented: included are about 400,000 specimens mainly from the Nearctic region, but with an important Neotropical component and fewer taxa from the remaining biogeographic regions of the world. It holds the largest collection of Mexican ground beetles in the world. The moths and butterflies, order Lepidoptera, with over 65,000 specimens, about half of which are from Alberta localities, are another group of major interest. It is an extremely important regional collection, with specimens representing most species of insects in the province of Alberta.
