Publisher: University of California / Berkeley Natural History Museum
Abstract: The Essig Museum of Entomology is a part of a consortium of museums on the UC Berkeley campus, the Berkeley Natural History Museums. Since 1880 some famous entomologists (e.g. E.O. Essig, P.D. Hurd, J.A. Powell) built up Essig Museum and the collections of insects for teaching and research. In addition to California material, the museum houses a large collection of specimens from the northern Neotropics. Extensive fieldwork in Mexico by museum faculty and staff has enabled the assembly of a large, extremely important collection of specimens from that country. [Information of the supplier, modified]
