Acarology Laboratory

 

      Initiated by George W. Wharton in 1951, the acarology collection is considered one of the best and most extensive tick and mite collections in North America.  Over 150,000 determined and considerably more than one million undetermined specimens are included, preserved either in alcohol or on microscope slides.  The geographic range is worldwide.  The collections get extensive use during the annual Acarology Summer Program, currently the foremost training workshop in systematic acarology in the world.
