Abstract:Brochure produced in honor of the sesquicentennial of the founding of the Illinois State Natural History Society, pre-cursor of the Illinois State Laboratory of Natural History, which eventually became the Illinois Natural History Survey. Presents a time-line of key events and research activities of the organization from 1858 to 2008.

"With a staff of over 200 scientists and technicians, it is recognized as one of the premier natural history surveys in the nation. Over the years, its mission has remained fairly constant: to investigate the diversity, life histories, and ecology of the plants and animals of the state; to publish research results so that those resources can be managed wisely; and to provide information to the public in order to foster an understanding and appreciation of our natural heritage."
