Title:Primary Insect Types in the Illinois Natural History Survey Collection, Exclusive of the Collembola and Thysanoptera
Author(s):Webb, Donald W.
Subject(s):insect collection
biological collection
Abstract:SINCE ITS BEGINNING as the Natural History Society of Illinois in 1858 and its subsequent development as the Illinois Museum of Natural History and the State Laboratory of Natural History, the Illinois Natural History Survey has carried on research pertaining to the systematics and natural history of the fauna and flora of Illinois. Much of the early material and stimulation for the development of a state insect collection within the Natural History Survey during the late 1800's can be attributed to Stephen A. Forbes. His strong interest in the development of the insect collection was continued by subsequent Chiefs of the Natural History Survey and by the heads and staff of the Section of Faunistic Surveys and Insect Identification.
