Current Research and Projects

The Curators of the NSRL, in collaboration with students and with other researchers from around the world, actively conduct field expeditions and research projects that contribute to advancements in the biological sciences.  These research projects enhance our knowledge and understanding of biological diversity, biogeography, conservation, systematics and evolution, population genetics, zoonoses and emerging infectious diseases, ecotoxicology, and more.

A few of the current and recent research projects led by NSRL Curators are highlighted below.
