Southeastern Louisiana University Herpetology Collection

Latest version published by Southeastern Louisiana University Vertebrate Museum on Aug 7, 2017 Southeastern Louisiana University Vertebrate Museum

The majority of the collection is comprised of specimens from the southern United States, particularly southern Louisiana. We also have moderately large holdings of specimens from the western United States and the West Indies. In addition to fluid specimens, we have a collection of amphibian and reptile tissue samples for genetic analyses. Most of these tissue samples have corresponding voucher specimens in the fluid collection. We also have a histological (slide) collection for studies of reproductive anatomy in amphibians and reptiles. The museum is also home to the Harold A. Dundee Herpetological Library, a collection of thousands of biological books, journals, and reprints, particularly herpetological texts.
