East Texas Natural History Collection
1). Build collections for support of teaching zoology, botany and geology...at local institutions and in the community. The closest large public collections are at College Station, Austin, Fort Worth, Baton Rouge, or Tulsa.
2). Attract leading scientists to the ETNHC by providing research collections, labs and residential facilities in a little known corner of Texas. Texas is rich in opportunity for new discovery. Since 2011 the ETNHC has already facilitated the discovery of a new plant species, new populations of two endangered species and a fish species new to Texas.
3). Create better students and empassioned citizen scientists by interactions with visiting scientists. Students may interact with top scientists and even co-author papers with them. Students have previously worked with scientists from the US Forest Service endangered species scientists, Botanical Research Institute of Texas and the Texas Memorial Museum.
The East Texas Natural History Collection is proud to be the first North American Host and partner with the International Journal of Entomology and Zoology Studies. The Journal of Entomology and Zoology Studies is a peer reviewed international Open Access Journal which is abstracted in various reputed databases. The Journal provides a platform with the aim of motivating students and personnel in all fields of Zoology.
