KUBI Ornithology Tissue Collection
The Ornithology group in the Biodiversity Institute at the University of Kansas conducts research and provides undergraduate and graduate education on the birds of the world. Research topics include the species limits and species diversity, evolution, geography, genetics and genomics, morphology, conservation, ecology, and behavior. This work is greatly enhanced by extensive research collections of world birds, numbering about 112,000 specimens, many of which are recently collected as part of the group's global bird sampling program.
The frozen tissue collection, > 25,000 samples, is the fastest-growing in Ornithology. See geographic coverage for the broad scope of efforts across the planet. As a result of these modern inventories, the collections see intense use from both within KU and in the systematic community at large.
