Moore Laboratory of Zoology


The Moore Laboratory of Zoology (MLZ) is an organized research unit associated with the Department of Biology at Occidental College in the historic Los Angeles neighborhood of Eagle Rock. The MLZ was founded in 1950 by the late Robert T. Moore (B.A. University of Pennsylvania, 1904, M.A. Harvard, 1905), the famed amateur ornithologist and philanthropist. The Laboratory’s collection of birds and mammals, containing 64,121 specimens (62,382 birds and 2,158 mammal specimens as of September 2002) is among the world’s largest research natural history collections.
