Note:

Continuation of previously approved award (2019: 79272, 2020: 81665). The vertebrate, terrestrial invertebrate, and plant collections at MSU will be consolidated into the Xeric Ecosystem Research Center (XERC), with modern infrastructure and digitized specimen data, which will become much more useful and accessible to scientists and members of the public. The Xeric Ecosystem Research Center will consolidate all specimens currently in natural history collections at Midwestern State University. Midwestern State will actively promote XERC to the broader scientific community and encourage broad use of the specimens and data contained therein. Through these efforts, the Xeric Ecosystem Research Center will serve as a hub for research, a record of biodiversity, and a repository for important biological materials from xeric ecosystems.
