INHS Collections on the World Wide Web

Widespread use of the Internet has tremendously increased access to collections, including those at INHS. Many of the collections databases can be searched via the World Wide Web. Staff are also working to link the INHS Geographic Information System to allow remote users to produce maps showing species distributions based on up-to-the-minute collection data. Although this capability is currently limited to the amphibian and reptile collection and a small part of the insect collection, mapable data sets are increasing rapidly. Check the INHS Web site at regularly for updates.

The following links currently provide access to INHS collections and related resources:

* Collection databases:

* Distribution maps for 29 stonefly species known from the Rock and Upper Mississippi rivers in Illinois:
