Summer Processing of Specimens

UofA and the Royal Alberta Museum were hotbeds of activity again this year as taxonomic staff from the RAM (ABMI’s Processing Centre) and our summer monitoring field crews came together to clean, sort and identify thousands of specimens found in the field. At the UofA, the monitoring crews were divided into three labs: invertebrates, lichens and bryophytes under the supervision of Rob Hinchliffe, Diane Haughland and Eleanor Edye respectively. The mite crew were hard at work at the RAM processing specimens under the supervision of Dave Walter. Check out our gallery for some photos of the acitivity.
